Join Habitat for Humanity Work Days: Three Saturdays in January, March and May
The Mighty Methodist Coalition will build a Habitat for Humanity home for the Perez family beginning on Saturday, January 14, 2017. The home will be located at 1937 East Don Carlos in Tempe, near the ASU campus and the 101 Freeway.
The Mighty Methodist Coalition is teaming with the St. Patrick Catholic Community, Cox Communications, The Casa Franciscan Renewal Center, and the City of Tempe on this house, which will be the new home of Eladio, Daisy, and Eladio, Jr. Perez. The schedule of the work to be done on particular days has changed a little as a result of weather conditions, but PVUMC’s work days are the same:
- Saturday, January 28, 7:30 am – 2:00 pm. Framing; installing safety rails and scaffolding. We will be working with Dayspring UMC and Dove of the Desert UMC.
- Saturday, March 25, 7:30 am – 2:00 pm. Drywall. We will be working with Dayspring UMC and Desert Foothills UMC.
- Saturday, May 13, 6:30 – 1:00 pm. Interior painting; accessories; landscaping. We will be working with Chandler UMC, St. Matthew UMC, and Tempe First UMC.
Habitat provides all tools, tool aprons, and supplies. Work gloves are useful. Habitat requests that volunteers arrive 15 minutes prior to start time to sign in and attend the morning meeting. Volunteers must be at least 16 years old. New volunteers will need to fill out an annual Volunteer Information and Waiver form. This can be filled out in advance and turned in when you arrive, or filled out when you get there. A new form is required for each volunteer each year.
