Habitat for Humanity Community Outreach Opportunity

We have been contacted by C V Habitat and offered two days of construction to fill with Lovely Lane volunteers.  We have asked for this in the past and now it has happened.

The two days we can fill are Tuesday, May 7th and Tuesday, May 14th.

We need 7 -8 volunteers per day.  No more than 8 total.

The work site address is 823 11th Ave SE in Cedar Rapids

  • May 7th scheduled work. (Based on current progress)
    • Roof Work / Putting sheeting on trusses and installing drip edge.  (Up to 6 people)
    • Inside work /  installing extra blocking in kitchen for cabinet support.  For those who do not like roof work!  (probably 2 people)
  • May 14th scheduled work.
    • Front and rear deck work
    • Prepare for siding install.

I know we have plenty of talented people at Lovely Lane to successfully take on this opportunity.  If you are interested in joining in and being part of helping to complete a Habitat home for a deserving person let me know as soon as possible as the timeline is actually quite short.  I will need to commit our total number of volunteers no later than Wednesday, May 1st.  If we do not totally cover this opportunity they will have to open it up to the general public.

You do not have to be an expert carpenter to be of help on a Habitat house project.  Experts are there directing the work!
