There are many ways to help out on a Habitat build site, from general construction to making lunches to hosting our volunteers. Right now, we have even more ways to get involved. Apart from our current Hilchey Road build in Campbell River, we need volunteers to make walls in our prefabrication shop, and to assist in renovating a previous Habitat home. You can help us bring these tasks to completion!
Just by coming out for one day, you will make a huge difference to the families who will move into these homes. No experience is required, and lunch, coffee, and snacks are provided.
477 Hilchey Road
Our first duplex at 477 Hilchey Road in Campbell River is near completion, but not quite done yet! This week we need help with trim and other finishing. As well, we are still looking for some help through the summer months to complete decks, landscaping and some site development. Starting September 11th, 2017, we will be back at it six days a week, Mondays to Saturdays (8:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m.), with the start of our next two duplexes. This long term project is going to take the dedication of many volunteers, so please plan ahead and get your days booked now.
In order to prep for our next two duplexes, prefabrication of walls will start again August 21st. The prefab shop will run Mondays and Tuesdays from 8:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m. The plan is to make all walls for our next two duplexes at 477 Hilchey. This shop has also been used for painting and cabinet building. This is a great opportunity to work indoors, but still do some serious building! The prefabrication shop is located next door to the ReStore (1790 Tarmarac Street).
Maple Street Renovation
This home is one of two units constructed by Habitat for Humanity Vancouver Island North in 2009. Improved financial security has allowed the previous homeowners to purchase a home through a conventional mortgage and sell this one back to Habitat. The renovation project will restore the property to a ‘like-new’ condition to provide a fresh start for the next family that moves in. We are looking for volunteers to help with this project starting August 15th, 2017. Shifts at Maple Street will be Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 8:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m.
