The Berea College Campus Chapter of Habitat for Humanity would like to inform you of a service we offer! Every year, volunteers from the chapter work in the community doing any and every kind of work around the house. We are willing to rake leaves, garden, pick weeds, mow grass, dig holes, etc. You name it and we will do it.
We do not ask for payment, but we accept donations which go towards funding our alternative Spring Break trip. For every donation, we are closer to sending Berea College students somewhere to build homes for families in need.
If you would like to use our services for anything, please email Joel Cecil at firstname.lastname@example.org and set up a date and time where we can come out and volunteer for you.
