From June 3 -14, Gloria Dei, in partnership with Interfaith Builders (a coalition of Saint Paul churches and synagogues), joined Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity to construct an affordable home for a family. The construction site was at 1023 Seminary Avenue in Saint Paul’s Midway area.
Gloria Dei brought 12 volunteers who helped with construction. Gloria Dei volunteers also provided the noon time meal for all workers on June 6.
Thanks to everyone who volunteered their time and resources toward this worthwhile cause of serving those in our community, including immigrants. Special thanks to Matt Sherwood who coordinates our efforts with Interfaith Builders and recruits many of our volunteers.
We are always in need of volunteers; no construction experience is required. We would love to bring even more Gloria Dei volunteers in 2020.
