As a “God’s Work – Our Hands” project we are working to put together a team to help with a local Habitat for Humanity project.  If you are handy and can help with painting, drywall, ceramic tile, electrical, etc. or have any other construction skills, or would simply just like to help out, please contact Tom Schifer at tcschifer@roadrunner.com. Once we have assembled a team, we will coordinate with Habitat on specific projects and dates when they could use our help.
