What to Expect on August 14
For a morning or all-day session, plan to arrive at a worksite in Holland (we’ll let you know where) at 8:30 a.m. For an afternoon session, plan to arrive at Hope Church by noon, where we’ll gather for a celebration barbecue lunch (for which we ask a $5 donation). We’ll hold a raffle for this year’s recipient, the Kelly Markatos Memorial Build through Lakeshore Habitat for Humanity, with some proceeds covering minor event costs, so bring your checkbook!
For this year’s donation drive, we’ll be reaching across the county line to help stock upSylvia’s Place with school supplies. Located in Allegan, Sylvia’s Place provides a warm and safe place for those fleeing domestic violence.
