VIM Work Camp (New Lisbon)
From Sunday, September 15, 2019
To Friday, September 20, 2019

Note: The previously scheduled trip to Harbor House has been canceled and replaced by the following work camp. 

VIM volunteers needed for Wisconsin flood relief effort in New Lisbon area. Your assistance is needed to help a Wisconsin Family whose home was severely damaged by the heavy rains that flooded many parts of southwestern WI. Because their home is in the flood plain the family will be building a new home on higher ground.WeI would like at least 10 VIM volunteers to join us for a effort to get as much of the house framed up as possible.

Volunteers will eat and sleep at the Winding Rivers UMC in New Lisbon. This is close to the McDonalds north of the interstate.  The Dorm  Building will have 15 twin beds as well as 30 cots. I suggest that you bring your own pillow and sleeping bag and air mattress, and ear plugs as the dorm has cubes.

This is a drive to camp.

Registration: Complete a VIM registration form and submit no later than Sept. 11 so background checks can be completed for anyone who has not had one in the last 2 years.

Trip cost: Free, though a donation would be appreciated

Tools: VIM trailer will be at work site. We will be working on a house so bring appropriate tools.
