Letter From The ED: Looking Forward To Build Season

As another winter passes us by, it’s time to roll up our sleeves, get out the toolbox and start making a difference. In other words, it’s time for build season.

Volunteers are all smiles on last year’s build site!

This part of the year is always exciting for everyone at Lake Agassiz Habitat for Humanity. That’s because we get to take our months of planning and fundraising and put them into action. We hope you share some of this excitement with us as we gear up for the season and look forward to the rewarding volunteer opportunities that lie ahead.

Since our organization was founded in 1991, we’ve been blessed with so many great volunteers, and we hope everyone decides to return in 2013. Like always, we have many ways to get involved on the jobsite. Just go to our website and click on the “Volunteer Up” link. There you can see the schedule and volunteer needs for the two homes we’re planning to build this year. Then, for instance, if you want to fine-tune your drywalling skills or learn first-hands how to do it, simply register online for the scheduled drywall dates.

It won’t be long before we start breaking ground, so start looking for your work gloves and stretching out your hammering arm…We’re looking forward to seeing you on the jobsite!
