Bridgemen Build for H4H!1455381000000

RSVP for this event opens at 9:00 AM on January 23.

Like to screw and bang things??  Whether you're handy with a hammer or have no skills at all, WE WANT YOU to volunteer for the Bridgemen's forth partnership with Habitat for Humanity. No experience is necessary and hunky handy-men will be teaching us handy skills we'll need to do our job for the day!


Our tasks will vary depending on the progress being made at Habitat Terrace in Oceanview, which you may remember was ravaged by fire a few years ago. But alas, no task is too small for the Bridgemen! So whether we're driving nails into studs, painting, or just unloading supplies, our contribution will help to build critical, low-income housing in San Francisco for those in most need.

**Day-of project training begins promptly at 8:45 AM so please arrive early and be aware that the construction site doesn't open until 8:30 AM. If you arrive after training, you will be turned away. Consider taking MUNI, as parking is limited.

For those of you that are interested in going together as a group. We will be meeting at Castro MUNI Station at 7:30 AM. It takes about 30 minutes to get to the site.

Be sure to bring a water container as they will have water, but you will need to have something to put the water in. 

Lunch will be provided to all Bridgemen participants!

Jess will be the Event Lead for the project. If you have any trouble finding us, please call or text Michael at 415.987.5120.

Come prepared to do good and get dirty with your fellow Bridgemen!
