Rotary Club of Cincinnati Women 2 Women Hands on Service Project - Habitat for Humanity Women Build

Women BuildHabitat for Humanity of Greater Cincinnati is celebrating its 30th Anniversary with a Women Build – 3 homes in 30 working days for 3 families and the Rotary Club of Cincinnati’s Women 2 Women Committee is planning a Hands on Service Project at one of the build sites on Saturday, May 28, 2016. The goal is not to exclude men, but to empower women. For this reason, we are hoping for an all female or predominantly female group of Rotarians for this project. The details for registering are listed below…Please read them thoroughly:

Date: Saturday, May 28, 2016, from 8:30am-4:00pm.  Please arrive on time.

Group Size:  20 people. Please note, that to be present on a construction site, volunteers must be at least 16 and have a parent/guardian/adult (over age 21) volunteering with them if under 18.  Volunteers ages 16 & 17 are not allowed to do roofing, demolition, use power tools, or use ladders over 6ft. At least 1 adult (over age 21) is required to accompany every 5 minors.

Location:  Build site located at 2489 Wilson Ave in Colerain Township.  Limited street parking is available. Carpooling is highly recommended.  The Site Leader is Minnetta Synesael #513-482-5608.

Lunch:  Habitat does not provide lunch/snacks.  Individuals may bring their own lunches or groups may choose to provide a lunch for each of their participants.  If you would like to provide lunch for the construction site leadership, please bring about 1-2 extras. We also suggest bringing a cooler full of iced drinks.  Lunch is from 12:00-12:30pm.

Forms and What to Expect:
All volunteers need to register individually to participate through our easy online Sign-Up Process NO LATER THAN 5/20/16. Any spots that are unfilled as of this date may be released to the general public so that we may keep construction on schedule and get the family in their home on time.
