Help Build Hope

Building A House

Give some hope to area families by joining the Help Build Hope Project on July 14 from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. The Owensboro Family YMCA is sponsoring the event, which will be held at the Owensboro Convention Center. As a participant, you will help staff members build the interior and exterior walls for two homes. Your handiwork will be donated to the local chapter of Habitat for Humanity. Here’s everything you need to know about the Help Build Hope Project.

No Experience Necessary

First things first. You don’t need any experience or tools to participate in the Help Build Hope Project. Seasoned carpenters and craftspeople will be there to show you what to do. You will get a simple yet important task, and you will have help if anything goes wrong. It doesn’t matter if you’ve never lifted a hammer before. Everyone can help.

Now, if you do have construction experience, let the YMCA know. The staff is looking for volunteers to lead the teams at the event. Call Allyson Sanders at 270-485-1438 to get on the volunteer list.

Fun for the Family

All ages are welcome at this family-friendly event. If you want to teach your children about the importance of service, bring them here. They will learn how communities can come together to help one another. Habitat for Humanity is one of the best ways to introduce your kids to charity.

The Schedule

While you should get there at 7 a.m., you won’t have to get to work quite yet. Breakfast is served, and there is a short worship session. Then, everyone will be ready to get to work. That will leave several hours to frame the two houses, but the time will fly by. This is such a fun environment that you won’t feel like you’re working. You’ll feel like you’re helping, and that a great way to feel.
