Portland Metro Habitat for Humanity ReStore – Call for Volunteers Barn Deconstruction

The Habitat for Humanity ReStore Material Recovery Program has a great opportunity to harvest old growth lumber from a barn in the Cully neighborhood on the corner of NE 52nd and Alberta. In it’s place will become a new public park for the community as part of the Neighborhood Revitalization Initiative.

A contractor will be taking down large chunks of the barn, and will then set them in a space where volunteers can easily, and safely pull apart trusses, de-nail lumber, and load quality pieces of old growth lumber into our donation truck. We will also be taking out doors, windows, fixtures, and anything we can before they bring in the big equipment.

This is a great opportunity for neighbors and those who like to see immediate results from their hard work, and who are not afraid to get a little dirty.

You don’t have to know anything about construction! You just have to come with a good sense of humor, and have some flexibility as we have learned to expect the unexpected on site! We will provide all the proper training and safety equipment, although you are welcome to bring your own work gloves and/or safety glasses.

We are looking for volunteers who are available Monday through Friday from now until June 13th. The more volunteers we get, the more valuable materials we can save for reuse!

You must be 16 or over.
Court ordered community service you must be pre-approved before volunteering
Groups are welcome!

To get involved, contact Janell Watt TODAY!

Hope to work with you soon!
