Interfaith Build 2017

The Interfaith Build 2017 starts Saturday, April 22. White Memorial will work with eight other faiths to complete a house for the Rachid Hdidane family. We are assigned four work days, and we will learn about other cultures and make new friends.

We will begin with a wall build at 7:30 AM on April 22 at the Habitat construction facility at 2615 Westinghouse Blvd. Following the wall build, a wall raising ceremony will be at the house site, 3016 Camden Creek Drive, at 11:45 and work will continue into the afternoon. All are encouraged to attend. White Memorial is scheduled to work the following Saturdays: April 22, May 6, May 20, and June 17. Thursdays and Fridays are work dates open to everyone through July 1.

We need volunteers to furnish lunch for 25 on two of our Saturday workdays. Please call Harry Montgomery at 919-280-7733 to volunteer for meals and sign up at http://vhub.at/interfaithbuild to volunteer for construction. No experience required.

Home Preservation Projects

 White Memorial will sponsor 3 home preservation projects in 2017. The focus will be to involve congregational members, especially families with youth ages 14 and older (accompanied by a parent), in minor repair projects. Projects typically involve painting, caulking, deck repair, handicap ramp construction, siding repair, yard work, and occasionally roof repair. Locations have not been determined but the dates are:            

July 21 & 22
August 18 & 19
September 22 & 23  

 Watch for updates here and in the church newsletter, or email Harry Montgomery for information.

Presbyterian Build

 We have no involvement in 2017, but will return in 2018. This is an every other year project that we alternate with the Interfaith Build.

Wall Build/Day of Service 2017

 The focus is to involve congregational members ages 16 and older in building walls in Habitat’s construction facility. Youth need to bring a signed parent consent form with them to the site.

This is a joint project with the Community Service Committee.
The date is: Saturday, October 21, 8:00 AM
2615 Westinghouse Blvd.
We will need about 40 people to build all of the walls in about 2 hours!
