Volunteers Still Needed for Mason Ohio Habitat For Humanity Event May 31 2014
Our church Christ's Church at Mason still has PLENTY of room for volunteers for tomorrow's Build The Walls event! While there are almost 400 volunteers signed up as builders, we can use more! This is truly a case of the more the merrier! Do you need to be a master carpenter to help? NO!! Each build team is led by people that know enough to be dangerous :)
The overall effort is led by experienced builders who travel from church to church providing guidance. And blueprints! Basically each wall panel is already designed and printed out and each piece identified with an alphanumeric label. We need 6 A4 pieces, 2 J9s, etc. The blueprint shows the configuration and the spacing. From there it's a matter of marking the boards and driving in the nails. It's really that simple! No cutting at all, since a team will be cutting everything today!
So are you ready to help? We're not going to let you start hungry, with some food and a quick training session before we get started Saturday morning (show up between 7:30 and 8, we'll be out in the parking lot by 9).
It's very inspiring and you'll see teams, some composed of an entire family, working together, finishing one panel and moving to another until all the walls are on the trucks ready to head out!
This year, we're going bigger than ever before! We're going for the equivalent of NINE small houses instead of six. The plan this year is to build the walls for three LARGE homes to be taken to Cookson Hills Christian Ministries/Children's Home in Oklahoma. So instead of wrapping up at noon on Saturday, we're probably going to need to go until about 2! However, the more people we have, the quicker the work gets done! And you don't have to be a member of Christ's Church at Mason to volunteer (although we will ask you to register for the event on our church website). We're looking for close to a 1000 volunteers!
