Saturday – March 10, 2018
Work for the day is coming when our Habitat House will be done! George Sanford, Tom Nuchols, Mr. and Mrs. Miller, and some of their friends worked Saturday morning putting up sheet rock, and mudding cracks. This house will have to pass a new, government required, door pressure test. Every smidgen of a place that might be an air leak must be filled with mud.
There are still areas in closets that need sheet rock. Taping, bedding, and painting are all jobs that will need volunteers in the coming weeks. The 2018 women’s build will be May 5th. Ladies, mark your calendar, grab a friend and join our mission of providing affordable housing for a working family.
Great Work Day
Saturday morning a group of super nice folk showed up to work on out current Habitat house. Calking around window frames, insulation, wiring and general cleanup were some of the jobs worked on.
Dayna Brownlee, one of our Mt. Pleasant Board members, was there and I got a chance to ask her a few questions.
Why are you a part of Habitat? Dayna – I enjoy giving to the community, giving back.
What is your favorite on site job? Dayna – Painting, where I know what I’m doing. I work more to the end of the project.
Dayna has served on the Mt. Pleasant Habitat Board for three years. She is our Compliance person making sure our Habitat moneys are distributed properly. She helps keep us in compliance with Habitat International.
Dayna Brownlee works at Guaranty Bond Bank in Mt. Pleasant.
There are many ways to serve in the Habitat organization, not all on the construction site itself. We need volunteers to serve on various committees, volunteers to prepare simple lunches for the workers on workdays, volunteers to oversee registration of workers on workdays, donations of money or materials that can be used or sold.
Speakers and Habitat programs giving more information about our local projects are available.
If you are interested in serving or need a program, please contact Jaletta Farmer, our Executive Director, Monday through Friday mornings. (903) 575 1225
