Most of our youth group is under the age requirement to work on Habitat sites. However, our group still wanted to help. Back in March we used our Potato Brunch fund raiser to raise money to purchase both a bookcase and toybox for the Habitat family who would move into the new Manchester house later in the spring.
Andrea Lampron, our resident carpentry expert, helped the youth group by scouting out the best deals. She had Manchester Woodcraft build the bookcase and she found a put together toy box to assemble.
Once the furniture was sanded, stained and varnished and/or painted, the youth went shopping to buy some items for each child to fill their new furniture. Once these tasks were completed, arrangements were made and furniture was delivered on Sunday, June 3rd!
Great job everyone!
