NEW INFO MARCH 5, 2013:
Our site address is 2606 Hemphill St, Charlotte 28203 (yes, the same place we roofed last month).
We are on schedule to paint. In addition to the info below, you might want to bring an old hat. (I've done a lot of painting, and some always seems to get in my hair. May just be a personal issue, but thought I'd pass along the suggestion.)
A liability waiver is required for everyone on the job site. I will email a link tonight to the current RSVP's and wait list since I can't seem to embed a link in this post.
As space is limited at the job site, please only attend if you are a cofirmed RSVP as of this coming Friday night, March 8. There will be another HOPE - Habitat event in May or June, so there will be other opportunities.
Please let me know if you have any questions, or post your question on MeetUp - if you have a question, other people may as well.
Thank you, and get ready to roll on Saturday...
Hello HOPE Project -
Habitat for Humanity SWAT Team
Age 16 & Up (if 16-17, need waiver from parents)
Task assigned to us right now is Painting in zip code 28208. This could change. Final details to be sent March 5th.
Habitat will provide all required equipment, such as eye protection, hard hats and equipment & supplies to to do the job. If you have your own safety equipment, feel free to bring it.
Suggested items to bring:
KNEE PADS - We found out at our last event that knee pads may come in handy. You can pick up a $5.00 pair at most hardware stores that are basically strap-on foam pads.
WORK GLOVES - Gloves are also something you may want to bring if you have them.
DUST / PAPER MASK - I'm not sure if Habitat will provide these or not. I will try to find out, or if someone wants to volunteer to pick some up for the group, great!
WATER & LUNCH - A water cooler may be on site. Suggest bringing your own as well, and if desired, bring your lunch.
Please let me know if you have any questions. More details to come, closer to the event, including location address and a link to the Habitat liability waiver.
Happy Habitating! See you soon!
