Habitat for Humanity

Community Outreach committee has been working diligently with Habitat for Humanity to volunteer as a group for an upcoming House-Build and volunteering at one of their home improvement ReStore. A poll will be sent out next month for the committee member to get an idea on the number of volunteer what would be interested and dedicated to participate over the spring for this activity. We plan to organize two IEGAP groups: weekend and weekday depending on our availability.
