Call for Volunteers for HeroWork’s Anawim House project

HeroWork-LogoHeroWork is a charitable organization that renovates non-profits community infrastructure through fast-paced leadership-driven events called Radical Renovations. HeroWork does this at a fraction of the normal cost and time, through fast-paced renovation events. These are akin to a modern-day version of an old fashioned barn-raising.

HeroWork has slated Anawim House for a Radical Renovation and has issued a call for volunteers for this project which will affect many of our city’s homeless and most poor. Anawim is a day house for people trying to find a new way of life. With their family model, Anawim empowers their clients by working with them not for them.

Choose shifts as a General VolunteerTrade Volunteer, or as a Military Volunteer. In total the project needs need close to 300 people with all kinds of skills, so tell a friend!

The three main weekends of this event are Sept 23-24, Sept 30-Oct 1, and Oct 7-8, with preliminary work starting a week in advance and some weekday work.

“We will be building a nurse’s room for increased health and safety. We will be extending the art therapy space and installing computer stations. We will add a counselling room and build bicycle program space, complete with a workshop. As well, we will help promote a deeper sense of belonging of Anawim’s clients by painting the building, rebuilding the deck, revamping the entire landscape, and more.”
