PSU Earth Week: Salvage Building Materials at The ReBuilding Center
Thursday, April 19, 2012 - 6:00pm to Thursday, April 19, 2012 - 8:00pm

Join The ReBuilding Center on a done-in-a-day project led by a Hands On Volunteer Leader.

Reduce, recycle, reuse! Help reduce the flow of useable building materials into the waste stream by volunteering at the Rebuilding Center's non-profit resource center for used building materials. We'll be doing a hands-on project, so come ready to work and have fun! We will be working with the various building materials that are donated to The ReBuilding Center on a daily basis. Tasks may include: sorting materials such as trim, lighting, tile, and miscellaneous materials, pulling nails, sweeping, measuring doors and more. The ReBuilding Center’s needs are different every day.

Closed toe shoes required, bring a water bottle and work gloves if you have them. Please dress for the weather, The ReBuilding Center is not climate controlled and can be very cold. Some tasks may involve medium to heavy lifting. Youth welcome with parent or guardian. Enter thru the big brown community trees (you'll know them when you see them). Please be as punctual as possible as the ReBuilding Center closes to the public at 6pm.

Project Requirements: Volunteers must be 14 years of age or older to attend this project. If you plan to bring your children or other guests to the event, you MUST reserve slots for them. The best way to do this is to create a Volunteer Team. You can then sign up your team for this project. PLEASE NOTE: If you do reserve slots for multiple team members, it is imperative that each person signed up shows up. Spaces are limited and groups who don't show up can drastically reduce the amount of work each shift can accomplish. All volunteers under 18 are required to bring a waiver signed by their parent or legal guardian. Please download, complete, and bring this waiver with you on the day of the project: Youth Volunteer Release Form.
