T-Minus Seven Weeks!
Guess what, La Porte? This week marks just SEVEN WEEKS till build week! Your Fort La Play Porte steering committee has been hard at work to ensure we are ready for a fun, exciting, and fulfilling build week in June. We’re planning build shifts, food menus, child care activities for your kiddos, and more.
Most importantly, we’re focusing on YOU, our La Porte community, as we’re getting ever closer and more excited to host you on the job site. We’re looking for lots of volunteers of all levels of skill, as there are many ways you’ll be able to help out once you get on site. (Don’t worry if you don’t consider yourself a master builder!) Building materials will need to be prepped, sorted, carried, replenished, and assembled in place on the playground.
What else can you look forward to as a volunteer? We’ll have meals on site (lunch and dinner) and we’ll also have child care available for your kids during your shift. Most importantly, you can count on this being a fun and unforgettable experience for everyone involved!
Ready to sign up? shift sign-ups are ready!
We have a few unique volunteer needs to fill as well – please reach out to Lindsey@fortlaplayporte.com if you would like to help in one of these areas!
- CREW LEADERS : We’re looking for 8-10 community members with solid construction/carpentry experience who can lead our volunteer crews through the week.
- FOOD COMMITTEE : Help to organize, set up, and serve food and drinks to our volunteers on the build site.
- CHILD CARE STAFF : Entertain and supervise the kids of our volunteers who are taking advantage of our child care offering during their build shifts.
