Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
Merrimack Valley Habitat for Humanity will be building for the first time in its 30+ years in the Salisbury community. After delivering 92 homeownership opportunities to families within Haverhill, Lawrence and Methuen - we are excited to be bringing homeownership opportunities to deserving families within the northern part of our service area.
We are building 7 units - three family side-by-side home and a single home. Traditionally it takes about 18 months to complete a build. Come out and build with us on: Thursdays and Saturdays.
We are looking for skilled and non-skilled volunteers.
For skilled - construction and subcontracting trade volunteers (electric, plumbing and roofing) - these volunteers traditionally come out to support installing the electric or plumbing after pulling permits, or help us to oversee volunteers with their supervision. Our skilled construction volunteers are usually individuals who have some basic skills of home repair and feel comfortable with tools and help supervise non-skilled volunteers.
We welcome volunteers with no skills - all that is required is an eagerness to learn and participate. You can work with us for one day or set a regular schedule to come out and support the effort for the entire build.
We also schedule company and organizational build days where corporations and community groups - including local faith communities bring out a build team of up to 12 volunteers, and spend a day working with us.
