Habitat for Humanity


Hello all.  Just a reminder that we will start this year's build this Saturday  (March 4th) in the warehouse on the corner of Pratt and Washington in Huntsville (directions below).  Work will begin about 8 am, and is usually done by 11 or 12 - depends on how many groups we have building walls.  Coffee should be available, but I'd recommend bringing your own if it's one of those things you have to have :) 


This year's home is being built for the Sara Williamson family at 2136 Pisgah Circle, Huntsville..  This is a different neighborhood from past years. 


Remember, we don't report to the actual building site until March 11th.   



 Since everyone will be hammering, if you have a hammer to bring, please feel free, just be sure to mark it somehow so somebody doesn't pick it up thinking it belongs to Habitat.  Work gloves are useful too :) 


Remember, you must sign a waiver/emergency contact form before you can start work. Someone will be collecting them. You only have to do this on your first workday. You will also be asked to sign in so hours can be tracked. This you'll be asked to do every workday. Click on the links below for forms.  They will also be available at the site. REMEMBER - minors under the age of 14 are not permitted, and those between the ages of 14 and 16 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.


As most of you know, a group of retirees works on Tuesdays and Thursdays to get things ready for whatever is scheduled on each Saturday.  I believe the group starts at 8.  Unlike Saturdays, snacks and lunch are not provided.  Dick Allen of Good Shepherd leads this group.  If you would like to work on Tuesdays and/or Thursdays, please let Dick know and he will add you to his mail list.  His e-mail is adallens@hiwaay.net.


St. John's is responsible for lunch on March 18th.   We need a volunteer to take this task on.  If you are willing please let Irene know AS SOON AS POSSIBLE (Her number is below).


As always, thanks so much for the support you provide this ministry.

Habitat for Humanity is an organization that enables parishioners to get “hands on” in the community by building houses for those in needs.

It also gives parishioners the experience of fellowship, while building a good home for people in need.

Look for announcements for new builds in early spring.
