Extreme Home Makeover Home Edition Pensacola- On The Build Site!
I was lucky enough to spend some time at the Pensacola Extreme Home Makeover/Earth Cents build site this morning, first as a viewer and then as a volunteer. For those of you who would like to do the same, here's the scoop:
- To be a spectator, you need to park your car at the ball field at the corner of Beverly and 'W' Street. A green shuttle bus picks up passengers about every 20 minutes, between the hours of 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. to take visitors to the viewing area. The viewing area is directly across from the front of the house.
- To be a volunteer, don't wait to be called, just SHOW UP! Take 'W' Street to Marcus Pointe Blvd. From Marcus Pointe, go left on Rambler until you see the police blockade. Tell them you are there to volunteer and they will send you to the volunteer parking area. From there, go to the white volunteer tent, sign a release form, and pick up your hard hat and blue volunteer t-shirt. They will place you wherever they have a current need for volunteers. Night volunteers are especially needed, as this is a 24-hour, round the clock build.
