As in past years, Westminster will work with three other faith organizations (Ann Arbor First Presbyterian Church, Ann Arbor Christian Reformed Church and Ypsilanti First Baptist Church) to complete a modest ranch home in Ypsilanti, to sell to a low-income family. To ensure the lowest possible utility costs, the house will be Energy Star compliant, with replacement throughout of windows, doors, siding, insulation and appliances. Built during the school year by high school students, the 720-square-foot single-story house will be completed by faith organization volunteers.
Westminster has committed to providing 4–6 volunteers on Friday, July 30; Saturday, August 21; and Friday, September 10. Additional dates may be added depending on progress in the renovations.
Volunteers must be 16 or older; 16- and 17-year-olds must be accompanied by an adult. We will work from 9 am until 4 pm, with a noon break for lunch. Volunteers should bring their own lunch and beverages, as well as gloves and protective eyewear. Tools and equipment are provided, though volunteers may bring their own if desired. No special skills are required. All are welcome and encouraged to participate.
