Workers are needed for light carpentry, painting, moving inventory and organizing donations. Outdoor and yard work is also needed, weather permitting. Tour the building and meet several of its new business residents. Local farm-fresh eggs are on-site for sale every day.

A free home-made lunch and refreshments will be provided.
