They will be remodeling an apartment in preparation for a family that will be moving in March.  If you missed out on their latest trips, be sure to check out the details here.  To learn more and get involved in the upcoming event, read what Work Trip Coordinator Lee S. of DSC writes:

It’s just a couple of weeks before our first DSC Native American Partnership Work Day on Saturday, Feb. 28th.

For this trip we will be heading to Western Indian Ministries in Window Rock for a day of Interior Construction as we begin to prepare a new “apartment space” for an incoming family that will arrive in March. We will be constructing walls, installing insulation and sheet rock, and doing whatever we can to get an unfinished space closer to being ready for occupancy.

All materials will be in place, but if you are able to come, please bring tools necessary for interior carpentry and (hopefully) finish out. Hammers, saws, squares, gloves, etc. will be important, if we get into the need for sheet rock and taping tools we will be lucky!

For those of you who have not made the trip before, we will meet at the DSC Parking Lot at 7:00 on Saturday morning (meet on the east side of the building) and leave no later than 7:15. We normally return between 6:30 and 7:00 in the evening. While water and lunch are sometimes provided, it will be best if you come prepared with a personal water bottle and lunch. There is a small convenience store and Subway Sandwich Shop nearby, so the location is not totally remote…but be prepared. Weather is always iffy this time of year, so watch the forecasts. We plan to be working primarily indoors, you never know what might come up.

In terms of transportation, I will bring a 15 passenger van and trailer. Others may carpool, depending upon the numbers that attend and desired return times. It is a 2 hour and 20 minute one way trip, so we do spend quite a bit of time travelling.
