UMVIM Team Rebuilds in Weed, CA in April 2017

The Cal-Pac team worked in conjunction with Siskiyou Habitat for Humanity to help those who still have unmet needs as a result of a devastating fire in September 2014. The fire destroyed several parts of the town including two churches and 136 homes.

A combined team of 15 included University UMC (Irvine), Aldersgate UMC (Tustin) and an individual from San Carlos UMC (San Diego). The volunteers joined to provide much needed time and talent to the recovery project. They built wood forms for concrete foundations for a detached garage and another home with an attached garage. Being part of the cement pour crew was exciting, as the team had never participated in that kind of work before.
