Holy Hammers coronavirus update

We are staying in touch with the Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity office about plans for this year’s Holy Hammers build at 588/590 Wells Ave., St. Paul.

The Habitat office has closed temporarily because of the coronavirus outbreak. However, they are asking us, as well as the Holy Hammers Steering Committee, to please continue to sign up to volunteer for the build. The dates are listed below, and you can find the signup link HERE.

Falcon Heights Church assigned build dates

Friday, April 24 (Week 2, framing) – 4 people
Thursday, May 7 (Week 4, siding/soffit/radon) – 4 people
Wednesday, May 13 (Week 5, basement framing, exterior doors, windows/drywall) – 3 people
Friday, June 19 Women Build (Week 9, trim/closets/cabinets, exterior paint, porches) – 3 women

Falcon Heights has committed to fill 14 slots through the 10 weeks. After we fill our 14, we may have other dates available.

The status of COVID-19 will determine if the dates change or get cancelled. All of the Holy Hammers churches are signing up volunteers as if we are going forward with the build. We will let you know.

Even if you can’t help with the physical build, can you help financially? We know that money is tight for many of us, but every little bit helps toward our pledge of $3,000 toward the 2020 build. If you can help, please mail a check made out to Falcon Heights Church with Holy Hammers in the memo line. Send checks to Falcon Heights Church, 1795 Holton Street, Falcon Heights, MN 55113.
