Groups of Ascension volunteers, friends and neighbors work one Saturday each month with Habitat for Humanity in Lake County June through November. They help build decent, affordable homes for families in need while empowering those families to help themselves. This
year we begin on Sat. June 16 and will meet to work the 3rd Sat. of each month through November. The group will leave from the Ascension’s parking lot at 7a.m. to go to the work site, stopping along the way for coffee and donuts. New sites have been obtained in Waukegan and Zion, where new construction and gut rehab will be done. Habitat has initiated a new program, "Brush with Kindness" which is designed for exterior maintenance to enhance curb appeal in blighted neighborhoods. Sign up to join a work crew by calling the church office at 847-446-8335. Volunteers must be 16 years of age or older and no prior experience is needed.
All are welcome to join us!
