Work Day with Neighbor to Neighbor

Wed, June 12 • Eaton / All Day

The Neighbor to Neighbor (N2N) program, an initiative of Nativity Lutheran, seeks to help valley residents make their houses safe, warm, and dry. If you are able to volunteer on June 12 (starting at 9:00 on likely continuing for much of the day), we are scheduling a work day in the northern part of Eaton.

  • RSVP to Rev Nathan Hall from Nativity Lutheran Church if interested. He will send out further details to those who volunteer.

This particular project will involve 2 parts:

  1. We will be reglazing some windows.
  2. We will be attempting to locate and fix a leak in a metal roof. The roof itself should be good, but it does need to be tacked down. It is also possible that torn nail holes may need to be plugged and flashing may need to be amended. This part of the job will be part diagnostic and part labor.

We will need some skilled people, but a few novices are also welcome.
