Rebuilding Together Oakland County, Give the Gift of Your Time Rebuilding Together – Oakland County, Saturday April 29, 2017
Our Lady of Refuge is once again assembling a group of volunteers to participate in this worthwhile project. Last year Our Lady of Refuge volunteers joined forces with over 1,000+ other community volunteers to provide much needed home repairs to 63 low-income residents and non-profit facilities and 11 handicap resident ramps in Oakland County. We are part of a nation-wide group that included 187 Rebuilding Together affiliates, who organize 50,000 volunteers to service 3,000 low income homeowners during the event.
This year the goal is to help even more homeowners in Oakland County. Rebuilding Together’s mission is to bring volunteers and communities together to improve the homes and lives of low-income homeowners.
The sign up period is open now and runs through April 1, 2017, and we would like you to sign up by March 19th, so we can submit our T-shirt count.
All volunteers should receive an email shortly, if you haven’t already received one to sign-up this year the website is: www.rebuildingtogether-oakland.org.

Food Collection next weekend
Next weekend is our monthly food collection. This year we are giving out food baskets for Easter similar to our Thanksgiving and Christmas food baskets. We are in need of several items to fill the baskets. If you’d like to help here is a list of items needed: Macaroni and cheese, pancake mix, syrup, canned green beans or corn, cream of mushroom soup, crackers and cookies.
Please place all items in the baskets in the Narthex. Thank you for your continued support of Christian Service and helping us to help those in need.
