Volunteering is now open on the 2022 Thrivent / Harvest Home Faith Build at 396 Garson Avenue!
When you click the volunteer button, you will see all available shifts for the next several weeks. Additional days are opened on a rolling basis, so please check back every week or two for more availability.
