April showers bring more worries than flowers when your roof is leaking. Rebuilding Together, East Bay has matched our intrepid FCCB volunteers with a Berkeley home in dire need of roofing and plumbing repairs plus lots of clearing of debris and vegetation.We will help our neighbor—a senior living with several young children—make her home stronger and safer. Captain Moe Wright, with help from professional workers from BBI Construction, will coordinate the major skilled jobs while the rest of us will do some serious lifting, toting and ferrying debris out of the backyard.
We need many volunteers, from ages 14 to 94, for Saturday, April 21 & 28. The work will go from 9 am – 5 pm, but you may also sign up for a portion of the day. Contact Carolyn Cox for more info and to sign up. You can contact the church to pass a message on to her (510/848-3696 or firstname.lastname@example.org.)
And, as Sappho said, “Raise high the roof beam, carpenters!”
