Grace Lutheran Church West Springfield renews commitment to Habitat for Humanity in 2009

Grace Lutheran Church West Springfield is excited to announce that in 2009 it will once again participate in a new home build in conjunction with Greater Springfield Habitat for Humanity.

Kicking off this Saturday, April 18, 2009, this year’s build is located at 162 Wrentham Rd. in Springfield, Mass. (See map below.)

With funding assistance for the build provided by the Western Massachusetts chapter of Thrivent Financial for Lutherans, Grace Lutheran Church West Springfield has already pledged $1,000 toward this year’s build, for which the church will run a rummage sale in June.

Additionally, Grace has committed to participating in two work days at the build this year. Those days are Saturday, June 13, and Saturday, Oct. 3. Volunteers are always needed to help fulfill our quota of at least six crew members, plus providing lunch and water for all those working at the site that day.

Habitat for Humanity is also looking for “gifts in kind” to help the build effort. These items and services include:

  • Excavation
  • Water and sewer hookup
  • Concrete
  • Plumbing and heating
  • Electrical
  • Lumber
  • Roofing
  • Carpet and tile
  • Kitchen and bath cabinets
  • Landscaping
  • Smoke detectors
  • If you or someone you know can donate any of these items or services, or if you are interested in learning more about this Saturday’s kick-off event or participating in Grace Lutheran Church West Springfield’s upcoming build work days (which are a great way for first-time Habitat for Humanity volunteers to get involved) email Martha, Grace’s Habitat for Humanity congregational liaison.
