March 2017

Congregation of St. Katharine Drexel!

We have reserved June 17 and July 22, 2017 for St. Katharine Drexel Parish to build with us at Fox Valley Habitat for Humanity.

Please REGISTER and SIGN UP soon in order to help build, by following the instructions below.

1. Go to our scheduling site

2. Click the "Register" button (lower right side) and complete the volunteer profile form. Make sure to link yourselves to the “St. Katharine Drexel" team when you register or the system will not let you sign up for the SKD days.

3. After you are registered click on the St. Katherine Drexel tab for June 17 or July 22 and choose the construction volunteer shift. There are only 15 spots available on a FIRST COME FIRST SERVE basis.

The volunteers should arrive at 8:15 AM for waiver drop-off and sign-in. We will break for lunch at 12 noon and resume building until 4:00 PM.

We will email you any weather related closures on the scheduling site by 7:00 AM the day of the build or you are welcome to contact me directly if the weather is bad.

Volunteers must be 16 years of age or older to work at the site. Everyone is required to complete and turn in a Liability Waiver when they come on site (attached). Minors between the ages of 16 and 18 must have a parent or guardian's signature. Minors 13-15 years of age can only work on landscaping, when the site is ready for that.

SKD is working to build a team to bring you lunch, but build volunteers may need to bring their own sack lunch and water bottles. You should wear sunscreen, closed toed shoes and dress weather appropriate as you will be working outdoors. Habitat provides all of the tools, but you are welcome to bring your own if you want. (Our safety glasses and gloves are basic, so you may want to bring your own.)

Location: The location will be 1555 Solfisburg, Aurora 60505.

We're looking forward to having St. Katharine Drexel building with us in 2017. Feel free to check in with us as we get closer to your build day and I'll let you know what you'll be working on. See you soon!
