Adam and Brian will serve as our construction managers for this build. Their experience and work ethic will result in a positive experience for our partner family and our volunteers.  Adam will be writing weekly blog entries to keep everyone updated as we proceed through the build.

Shout Outs

TravelersLogoThank you to Travelers Insurance of Glens Falls.  Travelers employees donated “Casual Friday” proceeds to this year’s build and we appreciate their generosity.

 

CascadesLogo

  • Thanks to Cascades Tissue. We welcome them back after a very fruitful partnership last year.
  • Our first work donation comes from Gallup Concrete.  They have volunteered to form and pour the concrete foundation for the house.  This specialty work is in good hands with their expertise.

 

What’s Coming Up

  • Planning for our Ground Breaking event is underway.  Watch our Facebook page for an announcement.
  • Once the foundation has been poured, we’ll be ready for volunteers to help us build the remainder of the house, starting with the floor system.  We’ll be working each Saturday from 8:30 to 3:00.  Watch our website and our Facebook page for updates.
