Habitat for Humanity – Helping build lives locally.


Habitat for Humanity – Helping build lives locally.

What:  TPOB is partnering with Habitat for Humanity to raise $15,000 and provide approximately 50 volunteers to frame a house by building the walls and sheeting for the entire house.

Who:  Evgenii and Tatiana Stukalov family moved to Spokane from Kyrgyzstan (a small country in central Asia) with their two sons, David and Artur in February of 2013.  They moved to Spokane because they have family here and wanted an opportunity for a better life for their family.  Evengii is a car mechanic and Tatiana now works as a care giver for her mother and recently gave birth to another child, Darya.  The Stukalov family currently lives in a small apartment that is infested with insects and noisy neighbors and are so looking forward to having a house of their own.  The Stukalovs have been saving money and volunteering at Habitat and are extremely gratefully for this opportunity and to thank all the  volunteers who are participating in building homes for families like theirs.

When:  The build dates are Saturday, October 7 & Saturday October 14.  Volunteers are asked to sign up for an 8:30am – 12:00pm or 12:30pm – 4:30pm shift or for both shifts.

Where:  The framing of the walls will take place on the south east area of the church parking lot.  Upon completion, the walls will be placed on a flat-bed truck and delivered to the final building site in Deer park.

How: Volunteers do not have to have prior building experience since Habitat will be providing training and work assignments based on skill and ability.   All building volunteers, male or female must be 16 or older.
