Volunteers: The Heartbeat of Rebuild Upstate

Each year, thousands of volunteers help us live out our mission. Our generous volunteers perform critical repairs for our neighbors while having fun and sharing hope with each homeowner along the way.

If you’re looking for a fun, engaging, and impactful way to give back to our community, look no further. We couldn’t do what we do without volunteers, so we make it as easy as possible for you or your group to start volunteering.
