Habitat for Humanity at All Saints

 2017 Habitat for Humanity

What are your plans for this summer? Here’s a suggestion — help other All Saints members build a house for a Habitat for Humanity family. Join this weeklong project on days you are available. To indicate your interest, contact Linda Eliason (leliason@allsaintsmtka.org) with any dates you cannot help this summer. We will choose a project week to allow the maximum number of people to help.

If you are unable to work onsite, there are many other ways you can help:
• Planning the food — selecting a menu and telling people what to bring
• Communications — writing articles for the Scribe, bulletins, e-news, and the website
• Recruitment and signup
• General planning — deciding which week to apply for

2015 Recap

We had a very successful Habitat for Humanity project at 2476 Schneider Court, Chaska, during the week of July 27 – 31, 2015. Thank you to the many volunteers who participated by working onsite and/or providing food, as well as everyone who contributed to Building God’s Kingdom, Beyond Our Doors, or through designated giving to provide the $6,000 to fund for our workweek.

Special thanks to Pastor Antonio and Pastor Bruce, who worked onsite. And many thanks to:
• Davanni’s for donating pizza for one of our lunches.
• Caribou Coffee locations at Glen Lake and at Minnetonka Boulevard and
Highway 101, for supplying us with coffee — some donated, some purchased.
• Thrivent for providing additional funding for food.
• Quiznos for mixing up a delivery date, which provided some much-needed sandwiches for an unexpectedly large group one day.

We did a lot of finishing work — trim around doors, windows, and closets, as well as baseboard and quarter round. There was a lot of painting to do — all the trim and doors were painted multiple coats. We installed interior doors and closet doors, and finished the week installing kitchen cabinets.


 

To assist with this great project in 2017, send an email to Linda Eliason or call her or the church office (952.934.3550). We’ll contact you soon. Thanks for considering it!
