January 15, 2017
Seton’s second Habitat for Humanity build continued with our seventh build day on January 7, 2017. To say that it was cold that day, would be an understatement. It started in the mid to high teens in the morning and “warmed” up to around 30° by noon. However, that did not stop the dedicated group of volunteers and crew chiefs who worked through the cold. We had one main task that day which included putting on the remaining roof supports and sheathing. This was critical at this point as Habitat wanted to have the roof installed, which is a skilled trade function. After we accomplished that task, we called it a day shortly after lunch.
Seton takes off for one week and our next scheduled build date is January 21, 2017.
In addition to the Seton volunteers who helped on Build Day #7, the Seton Habitat Team wants to thank:
- Spring Creek Barbecue at 270 N. Central Expy. in Richardson for suppling an excellent barbecue lunch with all the sides and fixin’s.
- Starbucks at Spring Creek near Central Expressway (Rt. 75) for donating the coffee. In light of the cold weather, hot coffee was much appreciated!
If you are interested in donating food/lunches/drinks during the build, please contact Jessica Vieira at
. Seton parishioners paid for or provided wonderful lunches for the volunteers during the first build in 2015, and several are signed up for this year as well.
Go by and look at the project at 1133 G Avenue in East Plano (down the street from the Douglass Community Center). It will surely inspire you to join us!
