A message from the staff of Operation Home Delivery
Volunteers still needed for Gulf Coast building
Operation Home Delivery has been making great progress over the last several months. Currently, 220 homes are under construction and nearly 80 have been completed along the Gulf Coast. There is much more to build and the number of available volunteers is beginning to run short.
Please put the word out to local volunteers and corporate and church groups that the need for volunteers continues in hurricane affected areas.
To organize a group of volunteers from your affiliate, please contact the Operation Home Delivery volunteer coordinators at ohdresponse2@... or 800-422-4828, ext. 2183.
Please also encourage individuals to sign up as an Operation Home Delivery volunteer by going to the Habitat website at https://www.habitat.org/cd/ohd/gik_involvement.aspx. Select the volunteer option and complete the information.
There is much more work to do for many, many months to come along the Gulf Coast. Please encourage your local volunteers to sign up for Operation Home Delivery. You might consider e-mailing your volunteers and including the request in your local newsletter.
