Come Build With Us!

In our last post, we teased a little bit about the building projects coming up in the fall. We are excited to finally give you a little more info about those upcoming projects!

Starting in August, Serve Moore volunteers will be working with other long term recovery organizations to build houses in the affected areas. The Serve Moore team is excited to help local families who are still struggling to recover after the tornados in May 2013. We will absolutely need skilled and unskilled volunteers to help with these house builds!

Not only will we be building houses, but we will also be continuing to build many fences, as well as more sheds. We hope to continue helping homeowners finalize recovery by aiding them in these last steps. In addition to building sheds and fences, we've been renewing properties through gardening, and even painting homes. 

As we begin new Build Projects, we will also be continuing with Renewal. This summer, we have already been busy with Playground Builds across the city (including Briarwood Elementary, Plaza Towers Elementary, and Little River Park). We have worked along side the City of Moore Parks & Rec Department, as well as organizations like Kaboom! In the fall, we plan to build several neighborhood parks in our effort to #RenewMoore.

We would love for you to join us in these projects to build houses, fences, sheds, and playgrounds - as well as all our other projects going on to Rebuild and Renew Moore. Starting in August, we have tons of weeks available to bring volunteers! Contact us for more information or sign up here to volunteer!

 

 

Summer of Renewal

This summer, Serve Moore volunteers have been busy doing many different kinds of good work. Not only are we continuing to build fences and sheds to aid in homeowner recovery and renewal, but we are also finding areas of debris that are being cleaned for the first time since the tornado hit a year ago. 

For some, the final steps to recovery...

Fences continue to be a very important piece of homeowner recovery because many cannot obtain an occupancy permit without a fence. Volunteers have been putting up fences all across the city providing safety, security, and that last step of recovery. Serve Moore sheds have also been a big help to homeowners who have been paying for storage units or those who are ready to move back into a smaller home. Every day, groups build shed kits at HQ, as well as assemble sheds in homeowners' yards. Beyond this, volunteers have helped with landscaping, painting, and other projects to renew homes and properties. It's part of our passion to #RenewMoore. 

For others, we're only getting started...

While we are working hard to renew the city, we are still finding areas in need of basic recovery. Many parks and properties have been cluttered with debris for over a year. Serve Moore has been partnering with the City of Moore to find the places still in need of clean-up. This summer, volunteers have gone to work to finally clean these areas with great excitement. 

The Excitement Builds for the Fall

As the good work to serve and renew Moore continues, excitement builds of what is to come. As that excitement builds, so will we! Toward the end of the summer, Serve Moore volunteers will begin building houses. These projects will last through the fall, so we are taking volunteer reservations for the months following August!
