#2 Make Connections- Support SAHBA by Volunteering at Home Show
One of the many things that makes the SAHBA Home Show the best home show ever built is the volunteer team that supports the exhibitors and guests. Volunteering is a fun way to experience the show from a different perspective while helping play a critical role in it’s success.

If you can carve out a few hours over the weekend of October 4-6, we welcome you to join us at the TCC. You can see all of the time slots and areas of service available and sign-up directly online here.

As always, we will provide food coupons for each shift, extra admission tickets and a volunteer t-shirt to all those who join our volunteer team. Thank you for considering spending some time supporting the Home Show!

If you have any questions, please contact Alex Reyna at or 520.795.5114.
