Habitat for Humanity Build Day: Saturday, March 23
Our first Habitat for Humanity build date for 2019 is set for Saturday, March 23rd, this time in Culver City. That city has generously donated vacant land and waived all building permit fees for ten new homes. This project will be Habitat LA’s first affordable ownership housing project built in Culver City. The new development features six new detached single-family homes with three bedrooms and two bathrooms and four new attached homes with three bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms. The homes align with Habitat LA’s commitment to sustainability and efficiency and is part of Habitat LA’s Building a Greater Los Angeles campaign with a goal to invest $100 million by 2020 into revitalizing neighborhoods across greater Los Angeles.
While it is difficult to forecast at what stage the construction will be by then, more than likely we will be doing things like painting the interior and/or exterior, laying flooring, hanging doors, and landscaping etc. No construction experience is required and any tools you need that day will be supplied by the Habitat for Humanity crew. The only other requirements are that everyone come prepared to have fun and work hard. We are looking for builder volunteers (16 years or older), food/snack support, and prayers. The honorarium we have paid in the past has gone up significantly due to increase construction costs this year, so your financial contributions are also very much appreciated.
Please mark your calendars for March 23 rd , and see John Cheslick or Dan Wilson at the Habitat for Humanity table in Parker Hall beginning on Sunday, February 24 thru March 10 to sign up. We’d love to make this another great parish-wide event!!
Thanks for everything you do to make this ministry a success!
