Corazon House Build

2019 Corazon House Build

April 13, 2019

Corazon Instructions – Signups – 2019

The Rotary Clubs of San Marino and South Pasadena join forces each year, to build a house in a day for a deserving family in Tecate, Mexico. Participants travel to El Cajon and spend the night in a hotel. They meet at a shopping center parking lot  on Saturday morning and travel across the border where they met 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 construct a 16X20 house which includes a loft, kitchen counter, windows and a door. There is no plumbing or electrical. The house was finished at 5 pm and the keys were turned over to the family in a short ceremony. The participants return to El Cajon where a celebratory fiesta was held.

Thirty to fifty volunteers are needed for these projects. 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!
