Some of you may already be aware, but if not there is an exciting new part of the 2011 flood recovery happening called Hope Village – and they need your help in preparing for the project to begin. On Saturday, March 24th (that is tomorrow!), they will be holding a ‘Day of Hope’, and they need local volunteers to help with set-up, cleaning and general organizing before the volunteers arrive.
Those wishing to help tomorrow are asked to bring their own lunch; water will be provided. In addition, they are looking for people that can help with building steps, cleaning bunk trailers, assembling furniture and other general setup. Here’s the vital info for what is going on tomorrow:
- Saturday, March 24th
- Our Savior Lutheran Church
- 3705 11th St. NW, Minot
If you are unfamiliar with the Hope Village project, here is a brief description of what it is and what they will be doing:
With the approval of the Minot City Planning Commission, Hope Village serves as the lead organization with the City of Minot for the organization and coordination of 501(c)(3), religious, and other volunteer organizations serving the people of Minot. Centered through Our Savior Lutheran Church in southwest Minot, Hope Village partners have already assisted countless families in the Minot area.
Our work is first with those in a community who are the most vulnerable: the poor, the disabled, and those who will have the hardest time recovering (which often includes relocation assistance). Uninsured and under-insured homeowners will receive assistance in clean up, repair and rebuilding of their homes. The process of case management identifies those who are in greatest need and will receive our help by a priority system.
