Habitat for Humanity
Building a House Together
On Saturday, September 29th we joined Habitat for Humanity for a Panel Build Event in the West Des Moines UMC parking lot. We had the opportunity to build all the walls for a new home for a low-income Des Moines area family right here in our church parking lot. A Panel Build is a fun and unique volunteer experience offered by Greater Des Moines Habitat for Humanity. Habitat supplied the wood, other building materials, tools, safety equipment, and professional supervision. WDMUMC supplied volunteer crew leaders and the volunteers. The picture is of the 1st shift builders.
Greater Des Moines Habitat for Humanity is looking to partner with families and individuals who are in need of affordable housing. We provide affordable homeownership opportunities to those with low or moderate income. In August, we will host a series of meetings where interested persons can learn more and apply for our homeownership program. Are you willing to work with us to help distribute our opportunity to those who may need it? Click picture for more information.
