Build The Walls Event May 5 2018 Christ's Church Mason Ohio

Got an itch to help people have their own home?  Then grab your Habitat for Humanity Build the Walls eventhammer and head to the annual Build The Walls event at Christ's Church Mason on May 5, 2018. It's really humanity at its best.  Tired of watching people fight on Facebook?  THIS is the antidote!  Hundreds of people gather together and in a matter of a few hours the walls for four homes will be built!  This year our church is teaming with CrossRoads Missions and Help Build Hope to help them build affordable homes in Arkansas.  Obviously, these homes won't be McMansions, but they're going to allow those in need to have a home.

 

This is one of those events that I block my real estate agent calendar for, so no showing homes that morning, no talking to sellers, no taking calls (besides, we'd never hear each other with all those pounding hammers!).  It's just that kind of feel good event! (although I'll admit to some muscle soreness after...I'm a desk worker, not a carpenter!). 

Basically the way it works is on Friday May 4th (9 a.m. to 1 p.m.) there will be Cut Teams that will precut the wood.  They'll organize it into stacks with the lumber code on each piece. 

Saturday morning starts early with breakfast/check-in (7:30-8:30) and then a short worship celebration and instructions on the day's activities.

The volunteers split into teams of approximately 4-7 people, with each team having a volunteer team leader.  Each wall segment comes with a plan.  The plan provides the list of coded lumber needed, and the dimensions on how to arrange everything to complete a wall panel.  Once built, we carry the wall over to the loading area for an inspector to verify the wall is built to plan.  The wall is then loaded on the truck and we pull another sheet for the next wall segment.  Repeat until all the walls are built and loaded. Some of those walls are really simple, and some are more complicated (windows and doorways!).

Obviously the more volunteers, the quicker it gets done.  A typical Build The Walls event will have each team build 4-6 walls and finishing up a bit after noon.

The event is open to 5 years old and up!  Some families form their own teams, but you can expect to see everyone from grandkids to grandparents at this event.

Tools are supplied, but if you've got a favorite hammer, bring it.  Work Habitat for Humanity Build the Walls eventgloves are recommended and I'll warn you now, we're working in the parking lot, so kneeling on the asphalt can get hard on the knees.  If you've got suitable kneepads, bring them too!  Dress for the day's weather, rain or shine it's a go (barring lightning nearby!).  


EVERYONE is welcome to this event!!  You don't have to be a member of Christ's Church at Mason to volunteer (although we will ask you to register for the event via our church's website). 

Christ's Church at Mason is located on the southeast corner of Mason-Montgomery Rd  & Western Row in Mason (5165 Western Row Rd, Mason OH 45040  513.229.3200  www.ourchristschurch.com).

Click the link for REGISTRATION for BUILD THE WALLS.   2-3 minutes tops and you're in and signed up!

Again, you don't have to be a church member to participate, ALL are welcome and we'd love to see you there!

Sounds like a wonderful event Liz and Bill Spear . As a former board member of H4H I agree with you that this is one of the best ways to show our love to others.

Liz and Bill Spear This sounds awesome. My local chapter of my professional society tries to sponsor a day of service every year, and I go to as many as I can. Always a soul-satisfying activity.
