Ready to “Move that bus”? Corban students have the opportunity to volunteer as a group on the ABC television program “Extreme Home Makeover.”
“Extreme Home Makeover” helps families in need by building them a new home, and they will be coming to Salem in the next few weeks. The Corban group will volunteer on Saturday, September 11.
The first 20 Corban Volunteers will work from 12 noon to six p.m. However, additional volunteers may be able to help on a morning shift. To sign up, students should go to the Home Makeover website and fill out the forms before Wednesday, September 1 at http://richduncan-emhe.com/donate-time-volunteers.aspx as well as the scheduling page to register for the appropriate shift at http://richduncan-emhe.com/scheduling.aspx
Students should also email Deleen Wills from the Alumni office to say that they have filled out the forms as she will be coordinating the Corban volunteers. While the webpage says that the afternoon slot is full, Corban students can still attend by signing up for the morning time slot according to Wills.
These links will be removed from their website by Wednesday, so to ensure a spot sign up immediately.
In order to qualify students must be 18 years old and have a valid driver’s license. Volunteers must arrive an hour before their scheduled shift and wear closed-toed shoes.
