Hope Village Looking for Local Volunteers

Posted: Updated:

At Hope Village, the number of out-of-state volunteers is dropping along with the temperature.

But the organization continues to hear from flood victims needing help.

And Hope Village officials are hoping that local people will donate their time this winter.

More than three thousand people from around the United States have spent time in the Minot area over the past 16 months, helping Hope Village reach out to people who can't afford to rebuild their homes.

Now, the focus becomes more local as the group looks to people with construction skills living in our area to offer their help as well.

(Rev. Paul Krueger, Hope Village) "Whether that's helping out on weekends or taking time to come and be a part. We look at business owners who are concerned and have a heart for people living in the valley to provide their employees perhaps a day or two out of the week to come and be of assistance."

(Rhonda Thompson, Hope Village) "We're looking for volunteers who have a construction background - they know how to sheetrock, to drywall, to frame, to finish, to trim, a variety of those skills are absolutely necessary to go into the next part of the rebuild in Minot."

If you'd like to volunteer your time to help in flood rebuilding, contact Hope Village at 500-5206 or stop by the village located west of WalMart on 37th Avenue.
