This year, volunteers in Tucson will be building six homes and performing a neighborhood improvement project at the current Habitat Tucson construction site in the Barrio Nopal/Desert Vista neighborhood, according to a Habitat for Humanity media release.

Volunteers worked at the build site, 6909 S. Radec Lane, on the following days:

  • Wednesday, May 9, from 7 a.m. to  12 p.m.
