Hopedale is a participating congregation in Faith Build, a Habitat for Humanity project. Oxford area churches are joining together with Miami students and other community organizations to fund and build the ninth and tenth Habitat houses in the development of Reckford Woods on Fuller Way (near US 27 west of Oxford). The home-buyer family contributes over 500 hours of “sweat equity” in the building of the house.
Oxford Presbyterian Church, Holy Trinity Episcopal Church, St. Mary Catholic Church, Oxford United Methodist Church, Faith Lutheran Church, and Hopedale have all banded together for this venture.
You don’t have to be a skilled house builder to participate! No experience is necessary, and all tools, equipment, and supervision are provided. The Habitat workers provide the expertise and the Miami students provide the oomph!
People 16 and older can work on the house and those who are younger can help with making and serving lunch. You can contribute in many ways: work on the house, prepare lunch for the volunteers, make individual contributions, and support fundraisers for Habitat. Please call or email Liz Woedl at 513-280-1044 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested and have questions.
