Volunteer Opportunities Over The Holidays

A Call for Habitat for Humanity Volunteers

The work bee that we had last weekend went very well.  Over the course of the day we had a dozen helpers who pitched in to:

  • put in the floor cupboards in the kitchen
  • hang doors and closet bifolds
  • take a couple loads of garbage to the dump
  • put on the switch plates
  • feed the workers
  • etc

We would like to set up 2 more work days and we hope that some of you might be free to come and help. We are planning two dates over the next couple weeks:

  • Bryce is going to lead a Crew on Friday, Dec. 30th from 9 till 3
  • Barry will lead a Crew on Monday, Jan. 2nd from 9 till 3

Projects we will tackle are:

  • Trim
  • Finish the Cabinet Instillation
  • Closet doors
  • Suspended Ceilings in basement where the plumbing/heating pipes run
  • touch-up paint
  • Provide food for the workers

If anyone wants to work by themselves for part or all of a day over the holidays, you can contact Barry (780-853-2284) or Bryce (780-853-6474) and they can get you set up with a project that suits your skill set, the materials you will need, instructions etc.

Let us know if you have some hours to share (it does not have to be for the whole day but stay/come for lunch). Once I know that we have enough for a small/big team, I will get back to those who volunteer.

Thanks - Merry Christmas,

Linda J. (Volunteer Coordinator)
