Our next WE Serve Saturday will be July 10th. This month, WE will be serving two of our mission partners, Habitat For Humanity and The Big Garden. You can sign up for either project using the buttons below.
July 10th – Habitat For Humanity
WE will be helping on a local Habitat for Humanity build project to create affordable, safe, and stable housing for families in need. Volunteers may be helping with a variety of tasks, such as framing, siding, hanging drywall, and painting. No tools or experience necessary, Habitat supervisors will train everyone at the site. Locations will be sent out the week before the build.
Through Habitat for Humanity, whole neighborhoods improve and completely transform. Through this transformation, families achieve the strength, stability and independence they need to build a better life.
- Time: 8:00am-3:30pm
- Ages: Must be at least 16 years old.
- Location: Work sites addresses will be sent out the week of the project.
July 10th – The Big Garden
The Big Garden’s mission is to cultivate food security by developing community gardens, creating opportunities to serve, and providing education on issues related to hunger. As of today, The Big Garden has helped to establish more than 170 community gardens in urban and rural communities throughout Nebraska, Kansas, and Southwest Iowa. Our goal is to reduce hunger by increasing access to fresh, healthy produce and teaching people to grow, cook, & preserve their own.
Volunteers will learn about food insecurity, community gardens, and help out with some weeding, watering, planting, harvesting, and mulching in one of Omaha’s community gardens!
- Time: 9am-Noon
- Ages: All ages are welcome
