Sign-Up Your Business to Help Local Neighbors
During a one week time period (this June 20-26, 2021), 250+ high schoolers and their adult leaders from across the county will convene in Westfield with the purpose of repairing 40-60 homes for adult seniors and veterans in need in northern Hamilton County. There will be no cost for labor or materials to the homeowners. Volunteers will do the work of interior and exterior painting, building decks or wheel-chair ramps, installing mobile home under-skirting, or other home repairs.
While CrossRoads Church at Westfield is the sponsor and coordinator of this home repair project, we invite local SERVICE GROUPS and BUSINESSES to share in this opportunity to change a life and serve your local neighbors.
> Donate Water Bottles - It’s hot in July. Let’s keep the volunteers well hydrated while they are are working.
> Sponsor an Afternoon Snack Event - Provide popsicles, ice cream, cookies, or other fun snacks one afternoon (3-4pm) as students come back from their worksites
> Adopt a local area resident for the week of home repairs by visiting them, taking them a flower, or a small gift from your business.
> Take popsicles or cold drinks out to a local worksite, meet the resident, and encourage our home repair volunteers

> Provide Items for Welcome Bags - Toothbrushes, toothpaste, combs, stress balls, pens, tootsie pops, deodorant, razors, bracelets, small bottles of shampoo, and hand sanitizer so our volunteers receive a warm "Westfield Welcome."
