Volunteers Needed for Worthington Partnership’s 24th Habitat House Construction

St. John’s has signed up to provide volunteers to the Habitat construction site on Saturday, July 1 between 9 and 3. We have also volunteered to provide lunch for the Habitat workers on that day. The house is a two-story structure that began construction in the last week of April so it will be pretty far along by the 1st of July. The work site is located at 1676 Manchester Ave. Manchester runs west off of Cleveland Ave. just north of the intersection of Cleveland and Westerville Rd. Our partnership family is from Somalia and has lived been in the Columbus area for 20 years.  We need 8 volunteers to work at the site and 2 or 3 to make lunch for about 15 workers. There will be crew leaders to organize and guide the volunteers; no experience is necessary.
St. John’s has been a member of this partnership since its founding in the 1990s but in recent years has not been very active. This is a great chance to work together on a worthwhile project and to provide a welcoming hand to an immigrant family that has worked hard to qualify for a Habitat house. Please consider joining in this project and look for the sign-up sheet in the atrium.
