Cole Road Update!

Come lend a hand!

Thanks to the great work of the professionals in our framing blitz, along with several very dedicated volunteers, the Cole Road home is weather tight!

In the next couple weeks, the electricians  and plumber will be working on the home. 

On Tuesday, February 14, we will be having a "shovel out" day. George Burr and Son does a wonderful job plowing, but we'll need to shovel around the house to create paths to work. We'll begin shoveling at 1:00 pm. If you can help, please sign up online here or call 985-4850.

If you've had enough shoveling, but would still like to help, we can still have plenty of work to do on this home. Our typical build days are Friday and Saturday from 8:30 am to 3:30 pm. No building experience or skill required! To sign up to volunteer, visit VolunteerUp, our online calendar here, or call 985-4850.

Guatemala Trip Update!

March is quickly approaching for our team that will be traveling to Guatemala to the  Guastatoya District of the country to work on the construction of Habitat for Humanity homes for two families.

Thank you to everyone who has supported the trip through donations or participating in a fundraiser. For  those who participated in the nail guess contest in the ReStore, the total number of nails was 983. Congrats to our winner, Sue Green!

The group will also be taking donations of primary school level children's books with them to donate to local schools. If you have any gently loved story or picture books in English or Spanish that you are no longer using, you can bring to the ReStore by March 4th, and the group will gratefully deliver them to Guatemala!

Check Out Our Registry!

We're not married or having a baby, but HFHYC has a new registry! It is full of items needed in the office, at the ReStore, on the construction site, or for weatherization. You can view it here:

While items on the registry are new, we would gratefully accept gently used items as well!
