Sisters, our confirmed work day is Sat., May 13. We’ll be building a home for Charissa Johnson’s family at 2422 Morehouse Ave. in Elkhart (a block north of E. Hively, between Prairie & Main Streets.)
Thankfully our Foundation has donated $1,000 to make FPC an official Build Sponsor!
What a great way to start! The work time is from 8 AM to 2:30 PM. Mary Rasp - a passionate Habitat supporter - is “Nail Captain” again this Spring.
A signup sheet is in the Gathering Place, and as of Apr. 6, we still invite 3 more builders. Eleven are signed up so far, and we aspire to field a group of 14 helpers.
Our work day plan is to put up insulation & siding, and the roof will have been previously finished. Safety glasses & tools will be provided, and builders should wear closed-toe shoes or hiking boots, and work gloves. Volunteers are encouraged to share the age-based offering (your age times $1.00) to be a builder. But please note - if that is not feasible for any reason - you can still participate - as a builder, or as a “Lunch Mom.” As such, you’d provide a morning snack and lunch (e.g., sandwiches, chips, fruit, string cheese and bottled water) for 14 builders. People can partner in providing lunch.
For folks who wish to strengthen their carpenter’s skills, Habitat sponsors a free clinic at Lowe’s on Reith Blvd. (just off U.S. 33 toward Goshen) on Saturday April 29, from 9:00 AM to Noon.
