NC Catholics Volunteer Rebuild

If you're unfamiliar with NC Catholics Volunteer or the Wilmington Area Rebuilding Ministry, here's some information:

Post Hurricane Matthew in 2017, NC Catholics Volunteer (a partnership between the Knights of Columbus and Catholic Charities) partnered with the United Methodist Church to assist families affected by the storm.
Projects generally last from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Projects can include painting, putting up drywall, laying down flooring, and gutting a home. Projects are determined the day of the event.
Individuals under 18 must be accompanied by a parent. The minimum age to participate is 13.
Individuals must also be comfortable working in a construction site.

For this project, we are partnering with the Wilmington Area Rebuilding Ministry (WARM)

WARM's mission is to repair, rebuild, and make homes accessible; and to inspire service, generosity, and hope. They serve low-income homeowners in Brunswick, New Hanover, and Pender counties, many of whom are elderly and/or disabled. By preventing home accidents and illnesses, WARM helps people age in place safely - preserving their dignity and independence.

WARM focuses on safety-related home repairs and accessibility upgrades. Typical repairs include:
Roof Repair
Ceiling/Sheetrock repair
