Build an Adirondack Chair Project

Oct. 1-31, 2020 | Cost: $69 /chair  |  RSVP

In partnership with Habitat for Humanity, volunteers from First United Methodist Church have spent hundreds of hours building homes and interacting the community in order to give low-income families the security and comfort that comes with homeownership. Although Habitat has scaled back work on jobsites to outside volunteers, they have presented the First Church with a unique opportunity to get our “hands dirty” in a safe environment that still supports this ministry, in the form of purchase and assembly of Adirondack chairs . Each chair can be purchased online, assembled as a family, or household project and donated to the Habitat Re-Store where the profits back put back into building projects. If you are interested, please rsvp below. Courtenay Pearson will send you the details how to get involved.
