Habitat Update

Habitat for HumanityCtK’s Build Day comes early this year Saturday, June 1st.  We will be back at Fox Farms in Bayfield working on another duplex… FRAMING — one of the really fun parts of building.  We need volunteers to work on site and to help provide lunch that day (the usual sandwiches, chips, salad, drinks, and dessert).  A signup sheet will be in the Welcome Center beginning May 11th.  So if you would like to volunteer please do so – we can certainly use your help.  For those who sign up, someone will be calling you with more details the week before the build date.

And YES!  You really are helping others!  The following is from one of the Habitat Partners (recipient of a Habitat home).

It has been an amazing experience of hard work, love, kindness, and learning. The kindness of others, the willingness to teach someone new things, is hope when a family has disparity in their life. The ability to create a new life for our children is evident in Habitat. I remember just praying and sitting there looking at that empty lot. My children were dancing on top of the foundation in the cold winter months, sitting in that little trailer with mittens on after work and school — organizing tools and getting supplies ready for the build. We did not give up even though we were in a tough place. There is a dedication in the families that commit to this endeavor. It has helped me teach my children and myself. It not only creates a home, but character, integrity, a change in self-awareness, and the love of community. Hopefully, I can receive the education to find a job where I can help people like this.

NOTE:  If you really enjoy our build day, Love Out Loud is also sponsoring a Build Day the following Saturday, June 8.  Sign up for that is separate!  ~ Rap Fairley for CtK Habitat
