Habitat’s Raise the Walls Event, October 18 and 19
Two Shifts: 8:30am-12:30pm and 12:30pm-4:30pm
After several years of planning, Habitat broke ground on their new project on the land donated to them by BPC across from the church parking lot. We celebrated that ground breaking on October 20, 2018. And almost a year to the day the walls will be going up on the 7 town homes that will provide affordable housing for Blacksburg residents. We have been waiting for the day when our partnership with the Church Street Habitat project could grow beyond financial and vocal support. And that day has finally come!
I hope you will join us on October 18 and 19th. There will be two shifts available each day, 8:30am-12:30pm and 12:30pm-4:30pm. You can sign up for as many slots as you are available to help. Ages 16 and up can participate on the build site (16-17 year olds need parental consent) and ages 11-16 (for this project only) can volunteer but not on the work site. And for this event there will be lots of opportunities on and off the build site. BPC is offering childcare for ages 10 and under during the Saturday 8:30am-12:30pm shift for those who indicate they need it.
Habitat is giving BPC first dibs on volunteer spots. To ensure your spot please sign up by October 1st using the link below. Once you sign up you will receive a follow up email from Habitat with important information to complete your registration.
