Matthew25 Low Income Housing Renovation
During Saturdays in the Spring / Fall and Weekdays in the Summer, groups are invited to assist in the process of renovating previously run-down and/or condemned properties that have been acquired by the private, non-profit group Matthew 25; properties that are ultimately rented to low-income families at a percentage of their income, not only helping families in need but improving the immediate neighborhood and the city as a whole.
Youth and adults ages 13 and up are invited to participate in these efforts. Skilled adults / high school students with carpentry skills, etc., are always needed. Youth who are not skilled in carpentry are invited to participate mostly in the indoor work including painting, but have also been instrumental in laying brickwork, digging dirt, laying down trap rock etc. on the exterior of the homes/ sites.
Matthew 25 is quickly approaching the need for inside painting, etc. at their newest site, 9 Mount Pleasant Street Worcester. They are also still working on the creation of a beautiful stone wall using materials mined from the site.
If you are interested in putting together a work group for two or more days, please let us know. You are welcome to consider staying overnight in Worcester or to go back and forth as you prefer. Should a work group like to stay in Worcester, we invite local churches to consider acting as host (offering sleeping, kitchen facilities and/or showers), and/or to provide a meal during the week to the group.
For more information or to register as a host or work group, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
