Hey KV Volunteers! It is time, once again, to lace up your work boots!
Something very exciting has happened here at KeepVolunteering! We have found a building! Through a string of divine appointed opportunities, Jimmy Hudson of City Scapes, LLC. has graciously given KeepVolunteering a building for a year. We will be sharing our residence with the Huntsville Dream Center, working together to cultivate community and build a more resiliant community.
That being said, our new home needs a make-over. There will be slight demolition - ripping up carpet, removing sink basins, sanding the cement floor - and a large amount of renovation - replacing cabinetry in kitchenette and bathrooms, staining and covering cement floors with polyurethane, painting, and deep-cleaning. We are planning on having a small garden area on campus too, so landscaping also makes the list.
If any of these needs fall into your skill-set, or they just sounds like fun and you are willing to learn, KV would love to have your help! We are going to do our best to be at the building the majority of the day over the next two weeks if you would like to stop by for a few hours. However, please email us you can also call or text (256) 279-7421 in advance so that we have everything ready and are, ourselves, prepared to achieve the goal.
If you are planning on stopping by to help with renovations, make sure to wear appropriate clothing; shirt, pants and shoes that can get good and dirty, and some work-gloves (in case the occasion calls for it).
KV normally encourages children to be an active part of the volunteer force. However, because of the nature of this project, please contact me before bringing your small ones along.
For those who want to help, but won’t be able to be there in person, monetary donations for the preparation and renovations of the building are greatly appreciated. There is a KV Building Fund already established.
Up until this time we have been a mobile operation and so don’t have the materials normally expected for a building. So, we also appreciate donations of industrial-level cleaning items and supplies such as a mop bucket and mop, broom, caution-wet-floor signs, etc.
Below is a list of items we are trying to obtain:
We look forward to partnering with you to bring our new home to life.
Our new address is 2215 Mock Road, Huntsville AL 35801.
KeepVolunteering is so excited for this new chapter! We cannot wait to share our new home to all who come through our doors.
Thank you to all that have volunteered and who keep volunteering. You truly are the heartbeat of this organization.
