Build The Walls Habitat For Humanity April 22, 2017 Mason Ohio

It's time to mark your calendars for the annual Build The Walls event at Christ's Church at Mason April 22, 2017.

Habitat for Humanity Build the Walls event

 

 

If you ever get to feeling a little skeptical about humanity, this is an event that will cause your heart to swell and put a smile on your face (although you might want an Advil or two for afterwards!).

It's an amazing display of teamwork that in just a few hours results in the walls being framed for approximately 6 houses.  Crews of 4-7 grab a plan, collect the pre-cut wood and assemble the frames.  You see where the windows and doors will be and know that a deserving family is going to put some sweat equity into making these walls part of their future home.  The walls get loaded up on the trucks and sent off to their destination.  The teams keep repeating the process until every wall has been framed!

What's truly awesome is all this happens in just a handful of hours as literally hundreds of people join together to get the work done.  From grandparents to young kids, all ages are out in the church parking lot getting after it!

The morning starts with a free breakfast, a little praise, a little prayer, and then off to work!  

I really enjoy the work, and as a real estate agent I can't think of a better cause for me to spend some Saturday morning/afternoon helping out.

The Build The Walls even is VERY well organized thanks to build team leaders and the work of the cut teams that prep all the lumber the day before. 

The build crews?  The bulk of them probably don't swing a hammer very often, but the work is straightforward. 

A few tips: 

  • Dress appropriately, we typically go rain or shine, and late April won't be too hot, and probably won't be too cold either. 
  • The parking lot is HARD!  Knee pads help! 
  • Tools are provided, but if you've got a favorite hammer, bring it.  And don't forget to wear gloves to avoid blisters...and where there's wood, there's splinters!

 

We'll start meeting around 7:30 a.m. Saturday April 22 and actually get started with the building around 9 a.m. and finish around 1 p.m.!

Obviously, 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).  There are spots for cut team on Friday the 21st, Build Habitat for Humanity Build the Walls eventteam leaders on Saturday, along with breakfast team, cookie team, builders, and clean up crew. 

Christ's Church at Mason is located on the southeast corner of Mason-Montgomery Rd  & Western Row in Mason (5165 Western Row Rd, Mason OH 45040  513.229.3200  www.ourchristschurch.com).

Click the link for REGISTRATION for BUILD THE WALLS.   2-3 minutes tops and you're in and signed up!

 Again, you don't have to be a church member to participate, ALL are welcome and we'd love to see you there!
