Building Site Volunteer Opportunities
- Many of you have expressed an interest in working on a Habitat for
Humanity building project. We could use three or four more
volunteers on site this Saturday, July 8. We are still working on 63
Temple Street, about two blocks from our office. The project is
rehabilitating the interior of a building for one of our partner
organizations - Neighborhood Housing Services of Greater Nashua -
which helps lower income families find affordable rentals. The
project involves taking down interior walls and reconstructing them
to make more useable space.
If you are available 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on this Saturday and want to
participate, please let us know now. Just reply to this email.
I can tell you from personal experience it is fun and rewarding!
Last Saturday they removed a wall to become an archway opening into a
larger room. I demolished another small wall to move it over a few
inches. The "bosses" (Mike and Eric) are very helpful explaining
just what they want you to do and keep an eye on you to be sure you
do things safely. I also spent some time bagging up construction
debris to be hauled away - not difficult, just necessary! There
are many small jobs that need helping hands and you reap the rewards
of helping a good cause. Believe me it feels good!
Also, I'd like to encourage you to attend the next volunteer
information meeting on Monday, July 10 at 7 p.m. at the GNHFH office
in the Methodist Church on Main St., Nashua.
Thanks so much for your support . . .
