You are placed into teams and the skill sets are broken up amongst those teams. The times and stuff are dependent are your volunteer time but, there is usually a project goal to finish a house or 2 or whatever. The way it usually works is through a sponsorship at your job. That is how I have been exposed to the details but, I have not volunteered as of yet. There are other things they are involved in where you repair homes as well. Like the keep 5 Alive project. Where they go in and work on houses for elderly and stuff in 5th ward.

I have done the keep 5 alive with my bf. (he is a law student at tsu and they have a group that participates.)

I did not know it was sponsored through work. I will talk to one of the senior partners about this.

Everything I have seen was sponsored through work but we have alot of employess to try and get involved. I am not sure how smaller groups would try to start up but, I could probably locate a resource with that info.

well my firm is pretty large and i make friends there easily . so allocating labor will not be hard. Not to mention all the MHers who will most likely volunteer.

Maybe we could do a joint venture between the companies and MH. I know we can send in request here for grants to similar projects.

I agree! I know many companies and organizations do this sort of stuff all the time,but I am sure nobody would expect a bike community/website whatever to be interested so get people to take pictures and maybe write something up to put in the paper or something along those lines!

Yep, if it is done it needs to be done properly.

I was talking to a fellow co-worker (cruiser rider) and he mentioned that events like this are what released the harley riders of the 70s from the crappy reputation that they had. look at the blue santa runs and other similar runs: they help a lot with stereotypes.
