Want to travel? Like helping others? Enjoy meeting interesting new people? Excited to be part of a diverse team? Have an open mind? Want to support Habitat for Humanity? Ready to make a difference?
Let’s go to Macedonia! (virtually, of course!!)
Morris Habitat for Humanity is hosting a virtual Habitat Global Village Trip luncheon to Veles, Macedonia, on Friday, May 29, from noon to 1:30 p.m. You will be in your own home, participating in a Zoom conference on your computer, and eating food prepped by you.
We’ll spend an hour exploring Macedonian culture, food, drink and people, while learning about the families there who need safe housing.
We are looking to put together a group of 35 motivated, funny, flexible, open-minded folks who are excited to serve others, have a great time as a team and explore and learn with us! Please pass this invitation on to anyone – your dad, your friend, your co-worker, your cool boss – that you think would be interested and would be a good addition to our lunchtime team!
