Help build at least 120 folding desks for local students in need, for the upcoming virtual school semester. When you sign up, we explain the workstations and ask about your skill level. Some manufacturing tasks require special skills, such as precision cutting with a chop saw or attention to detail in assembling components of the desk.
Most workstations involve a team of two or three individuals. Due to social distancing challenges, we ask people who are immediate family members or close friends to volunteer for the multi-person teams. Please commit to working the full day, from 8:30am until 4pm. This way, we don’t have to re-train volunteers mid-day.
ALL PARTICIPANTS MUST WEAR MASKS in the parking lot at St. Mark’s Church in Highland. DreamBuilders will take additional precautionary measures to minimize potential exposure to the CORONAVIRUS.
We’ll host a Zoom meeting on Friday evening before each workday to review team assignments, tasks, health, safety, and Q+A. Casey’s Crab Company will provide lunch. For more info: Doug at firstname.lastname@example.org
Update 7/28/2020: All volunteer openings have been filled for this workday. However, we fully expect that demand for these desks will be high, so look for announcements of additional production days!
32 volunteers needed Saturday, August 1 – (Raindate: Aug 8)
14 volunteers needed Saturday, August 8 – (Raindate: Aug 15)
DreamBuilders’ first work day for our new project is planned for Saturday, August 1st, 2020 from 8:30-4pm at St. Marks Church in Highland. We will arrange a variety of physically distanced work stations to build and assemble more than 100 desks for low-income families in need of our help. The finished product will be distributed to students for an improved learning environment while at home during the pandemic. Check back soon for additional details along with an online sign up for volunteers.
