In 2009 Grace Lutheran Church West Springfield is once again contributing its time and talents to Greater Springfield Habitat for Humanity.
Due to some delays at the originally planned Wrentham Rd. site, the build location will instead be a home refurbishing project located at 62 Sylvan St. in Springfield. (See map.) The kick-off for this year’s event will take place this Saturday, June 6, 2009, at 8:30 a.m.
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. 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:
