AmeriCorps community service day - May 21

The AmeriCorps National Civilian Community Corps (NCCC) nine members Green Three team has been assisting Habitat for Humanity Colville Valley Partners since March 23. The team’s last day is May 23.

Green Three picked up the Victory Park townhouse project right where the former NCCC Green Five team left off.

According to Jessica Faylor, team media representative, the team has focused most of their efforts on one side of the townhouse unit because the resident is expected to move in at the beginning of summer.

When they first arrived in Colville, some of the siding and roof soffeting needed to be finished. Inside the home team members have worked on drywall, mud and tape, wall texture and painting.

Applying drywall has been one of the more time consuming tasks.

“We’ve had two people working on it every day for the last eight weeks,” Faylor said.

Green Three will be hosting a community service day at the housing unit behind WalMart on May 21. The team will be painting the outside of the house and welcomes any help from the community.

The community service event will start at 9 a.m. and will wrap up at noon.
