We're now HAMMERING!!! So looking for volunteers to help build the foundation and raise the walls and roof! EVERY Saturday from June 8 thru August 3 volunteers needed to help build our Habitat house at 324 School St in downtown Erwin.

Call me at 330-6357 or email us at [email protected] to register to volunteer for the dates of your choice….information on that build day, onsite registration, start times, and directions to the build will be given to you then.

A very special thanks to all willing to volunteer for Habitat's Christian housing ministry!

Special note: For the onsite projects over the next 8 weeks, only youth over the age of 16 can work on the site. And all youth under 18 must have release waivers signed by their parents or guardian prior to any onsite project assignments. Again give me a call if any questions.
