Habitat for Humanity sent out a request for 5 workers for this saturday. If you are interested please sign up on their website and also let me know. Once you are on the website, click on "volunteer" and register. For the space where it says church, you can put "Holy Family" because that is where our connection is from.
Students in the past have had a good experience there. If you can make it, I encourage you to go! You could end up with 8 hours. It would be this saturday. Plan to leave home by 7:15. The house is in Elgin. I will give you directions. Usually they work from like 8ish until 3ish with a lunch break. The work will likely be outside so dress warm - use lots of layers because you can always peel off a layer if you get warm.
