Flood Relief {2021}

Mennonite Disaster Service has had a great month serving together with volunteers and we made good progress on two homes in the Sumas Prairie, Abbotsford BC. You are receiving this email if you have volunteered with MDS or I (Shelley) have had some sort of connection with you in my work with MCC or MDS. We are excited to let you know about the work that is being planned for in the next couple of weeks and to welcome you to volunteer with us:

  • We are inviting volunteer crews or individual volunteers to join us in assisting homeowners in the Sumas Prairie to rebuild their homes. We welcome volunteers with construction or trade background and volunteers who offer general labor (painting, insulation), to volunteer for a day or week-long commitments. The volunteer crews will serve together, under the supervision of the Project Director- Mark Rempel. 
  • If you love to cook, you are welcome. We are looking for volunteers to prepare daily lunch and coffee breaks and deliver them to the project location.
  • This is a day work project, no accommodations are provided, but we hope to provide lunch and coffee breaks.

There are opportunities for volunteers to join us on short notice, on Monday, Feb 28/22

  • Monday, Feb 28- Wednesday, Mar 2: working on 2 homes- final coat of paint, flooring install, plumbing rough in
  • Monday, Mar 7- Wednesday, Mar 9: flooring, baseboard and trim

*Shelley will be scheduling volunteers for the month of March, April, May and June, as there are five homes to rebuild. Bring a friend or two with you and volunteer for a day, a week or a couple of weeks! We welcome you!
