2014 Fuller Center for Housing Rehab Bike Cross Country "Bike Adventure"
There is a group of 38 bicyclists participating in the 2014 Fuller Center for Housing “Bike Adventure”, traveling from the East Coast to the West Coast that will be rehabbing homes in key cities along the way. This mission group is arriving from Sandusky on Friday, June 20th around 11 am. They will be the guests of the Monroe Street United Methodist Church and housed at the church during this weekend. Friday we hope to find a local event or two that they can enjoy while here in Toledo. The rehab work event will be all day Saturday. The bike riders plan to visit five area churches Sunday to share their Fuller Center for Housing Christian mission. There will be a dedication ceremony after area church service at our project home site located at 2038 Parkside Blvd., Toledo, OH 43607
Saturday during the work project there will be food and beverages for the volunteers. We are anticipating 75 or more volunteers to help us with the many rehab assignments to this home. There will also be a lunch for the volunteers between noon and 1:30 pm Sunday after area church services at the home site . At 1:30 pm we plan to have the Mayor share a proclamation for this event and lead us in the dedication service celebration of this home and future Fuller Center for Housing projects.
FYI: Parking will be along Parkside Blvd. and we have been given permission to park at St. Francis Desales High School as needed.
We will have assistance from the City Department of Neighborhoods to assist us as well as contractor services from Wayne Homes and Indoor Comfort Systems, LLC. The City may be providing us a dumpster and for certain we will have many yard bags available to deposit yard debris from this home and neighboring homes. There is a goal, depending on the number of volunteers not working on this home, that we can do some lawn and property clean up for neighboring homes and some yard beautification –planting of flowers and other maintenance that we find that’s needed. The wish list by the homeowners and materials list needed to be completed to this home is here View Document
