Moffat County Fuller Center for Housing is having a Fuller Center Bike Adventure Build Day on July 15. The center is in need of work projects for some 25 cyclists that are coming to town to help us provide a "hand-up" to someone in need of work on their homes or property. This is part of our "Greater Blessings" program for the low-income seniors, handicap and veterans homeowners. The center needs projects that don't require a professional license to do. Projects such as yard work, painting, sealing, installing handicap items and other small miscellaneous items are welcomed.
It is the responsibility of the homeowner to supply the materials and tools to do the work needed. We supply the labor only.
Contact our office at Brass Key Realty, 970-824-7086, Vicki at 970-629-2470 or Neil at 970-326-8726. The deadline is July 10 to have your request in.
The Fuller Center for Housing is an ecumenical Christian nonprofit ministry dedicated to providing simple, decent housing for those in need in 16 countries and 22 states in America. The event is more than a bike ride — it's faith in action! Local cyclists are welcomed to join them along the way and help bring attention the program that is designed to help those in need of a simple, decent place to live.
This is Moffat County's second annual visit of the Fuller Center Bicycle Adventure. In the past, churches and individuals have felt moved to donate food for the cyclists to eat while staying at our churches or for them to take for the road. This is something you definitely don't have to do, and if you're interested, the office has a list of items they need help with.
