|VETERANS BUILD! |
Jan 21st - no volunteers needed
Jan 22nd - 25th - frame the basement walls, build stairs, and continue to insulate the basement.
Thursday we had a couple great volunteers show up and got a lot of the basement framing done. Still more to do though!
Helping out a day or more is a great way to say thanks for your service!
Meet Josh and Breanna and family! Josh is a Veteran and their house is the next one we will be starting.
