A message from our Grand Knight
Habitat for Humanity in our Community
The regularly scheduled August workday for Habitat for Humanity is Wednesday August 21st. This will be the second scheduled workday for the Fraternal Year and it will be at the new build at 740 Santa Fe Ave, Ormond Beach [click on link for map]
(740 Santa Fe Ave., Ormond Beach, FL 32174 ). Work for this week will be on installing interior doors as well as shelving units at the home. Start time is 8:00 a.m. Hope you can make it!
Volunteering with Habitat requires a completed Habitat Volunteer form which we will be happy to provide (e-mail Mark Leary at learymm4@gmail.com) and a short safety training course which will be provided on line after your application to volunteer has been received. Come join our crew! It is good work and good fun for a great community organization.
Respectfully, Your Grand Knight,
SK Mark Leary
