This spring Habitat Cape Cod is
eagerly anticipating a season of new beginnings. We recently notified four home buyer applicants that they were the ones selected for the homes in Marstons Mills. We are looking forward to finishing up the five homes in Brewster just in time for those families to start the school year off on the right foot. The three homes in Truro will be finished shortly after.
The new Falmouth ReStore opened last month and is even busier than expected. If you aren't already, you really should be following them on Facebook and check out their website for more information.
In this issue, you will find information on our upcoming Wall Raising, volunteer opportunities, construction updates, fundraising events and more.
Aidan Biondi, Construction Volunteer and Rising Star
When Aidan Biondi is not in school, teaching sailing, building rockets (yes rockets) or designing experiments for astronauts he can be found on the Paul Hush Way build in Brewster helping to build homes
alongside the homebuyers and other volunteers.
We recently said a sad goodbye to a good friend and long time construction volunteer Parker Chick. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family at this difficult time.
His obituary can be read here
We'd love to see you there!
Bring a friend to introduce to Habitat!

We are looking for 4-8 people to help at an event at the Falmouth Restore on Friday, June 8th. They would need to come from 4pm to 8pm to help set up and help clean up. Come for one hour, two hours or the whole event.
Help with Snacks
We are seeking food providers for the build site starting in Marstons Mills on June 9th. We need people to commit to bringing snacks for the volunteers one day a month.
Either a Tuesday or a Saturday, and drop off time is 9:30am. Brownies, muffins, coffee cake, are great options.
We also need construction help on the Marstons Mills build, Tuesdays and Saturdays from 7:30am-3pm. The schedule is not up yet, but you can set up an account
