Event description
Come help build Beacon Village at Bridgeport UCC! Calling all volunteers to spend a few hours build this alternative shelter village.

About this event

Beacon Village in partnership with Bridgeport United Church of Christ is building our first alternative shelter community with homes for up to fifteen residents in ten heated, powered, secure, hard-walled shelters, featuring a handmade shower & laundry trailer and open-air community living space.

Over the next month, we are requesting community support for our builder, Cascadia Clusters, as we build platforms and make other site improvements.

Choose a date/time--Bring your enthusiasm and ANY level of skill and:

  • A covid mask
  • Gloves that fit snugly
  • Ear and eye protection if you have them (we have some)
  • Lots of your own water
  • Sun screen
  • Snacks
  • Hand sanitizer

We will be using the following tools, if you have your own, please bring them as well:

  • Short pry bars
  • Framing (and other claw) hammers
  • Heavy duty nail pulling/cutting pliers
  • Battery-operated screw guns.
