Brick House Community Skills Share and Revitalization

Greetings Friends, Staff and Writers,

I am very excited to share a unique experience to share with our community. It involves a chance for people to learn more about Hands-On Social Change such as job readiness and cooperative support for underserved neighborhoods. Our mission at the Brick House is specifically geared towards sharing Creative Expression replacing Aggression as well as personal enrichment through Self-Engaged Enrichment. We welcome your staff to interview and cover in-depth opportunities associated with this event as a form of gratitude for the gifts that Home Depot and other volunteers bring to the community.
Please share this announcement and forward its contents to friends and association newsletters as an invitation as well.
My name is Kristin Shelor and I am the Co-Chairperson of the Brick House Community Center. I will be the contact person for this event and hosting 40 days of Service for Peace at our center. Individuals and community interest groups are invited to partner with us in celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King’s work towards embracing Non-Violence, Ending Poverty and promoting Civil Justice. Our goal is to share our vision of Do-It-Yourself standards of Sustainable Lifestyles such as affordable weatherization, creative repair including an introduction to safe tools use and greenovation.
