South Pasadena-San Marino
Corazon House Build
April 8, 2017
The Rotary Clubs of San Marino and South Pasadena are joining forces to build a house in a day for a deserving family in Tecate, MX. Participants will travel to El Cajon on Friday, April 7 and spend the night in a hotel. We’ll meet at a shopping center parking lot at 6 AM sharp on Saturday morning and travel across the border where we’ll meet the family that has volunteered hundreds of hours to earn the house along with building materials. Under the supervision of experienced lead builders with Corazon, Inc, the participants will construct a 16X20 house which includes a loft, kitchen counter, windows and a door. There is no plumbing or electrical. The house will be finished by 5 pm and the keys will be turned over to the family in a short ceremony. The participants will return to El Cajon where a celebratory fiesta will be held.
Thirty to fifty volunteers are needed. Construction skills are not necessary! Participants must be at least 12 years old. This is a great opportunity to introduce children, grandchildren, and Interact students to the world of Rotary and hands on service projects. For those that have never participated in a project like this, it can change your life!
