Community Outreach Partner
In September and October, First Unitarian is partnering with Habitat for Humanity, who brings people together to build homes, community and hope. They believe that every person should have a decent, safe and affordable place to live. We support our Outreach Partner in two ways – working on projects and donating half of our collections for the 2-month period.
Interfaith Build – Habitat is partnering with the faith community to construct a house near Drake this fall. First Unitarian is one of about a dozen churches in the area supporting this effort.
Build days – Typically Wednesday and Saturday from 8 am to 4 pm. Through mid-October, First Unitarian has reserved dates when we want to have teams of 4 working. (Either David DuBose or Gene McCracken will be one of the four). There are still 5 dates with spots available!
Training / Restrictions – All skill levels welcomed; you will be trained on the job. Youth 16-17 can participate with an adult present; they will need to print and complete a permission/waiver form (link is on sign up form) that is signed by their parent or guardian.
Dress for construction; sturdy, enclosed shoes such as tennis shoes or work boots are required. Habitat will provide you with a hard hat, safety glasses; tools and gloves the days you volunteer. You may bring your own equipment if you prefer, but mark and keep track of them!
