Come meet our new build team and tour the Hilchey Road build site!
DATE: Tuesday, June 19th, 2018
TIME: 5:00 PM – 8:00 PM
LOCATION: 477 Hilchey Road, Campbell River
We are building two more duplexes in what will eventually be an 11-unit complex — to put four more local families in affordable homes in Campbell River. To give potential new volunteers an idea of how our volunteer program works, and to provide an on-site orientation opportunity for new recruits, we are opening up our build site so people can drop by to see how they can get involved.
Both skilled and unskilled volunteers are needed
Build volunteers do not need previous construction experience — just a willingness to learn and a desire to make a difference. There are several different volunteer roles that do not require any physical labour.
Our call for volunteers is urgent because this is the first time in our 14-year history that we are building simultaneously in two communities, as well as operating a prefabrication shop in Campbell River where they pre-build the walls and stairs for all of our homes. To ensure that these homes are affordable, the majority of the work is done by volunteers, under the guidance of construction staff and experienced volunteer team leaders. We also utilize volunteers in both of our ReStores which is important because profits from the ReStores help fund the construction of homes.
Build site BBQ
We’ll be barbequing burgers and hot dogs courtesy of Thrifty Foods. (Yes, there will be veggie burgers, too!) A donation towards the cost of food would be appreciated.
And we are grateful for the grill masters from the Campbell River Daybreak Rotary who have stepped up to cook for us.
There will also be the opportunity to enter to win a $50 ReStore Credit Card and other door prizes!
