Home Repair Update:
We completed the large ramp in Malden last Wednesday, and are caught up with the urgent ramp requests. We have several jobs coming up, each of which is “non-urgent”.
1. A well built and nearly new ramp in Moscow has been donated to us; we plan to dis-assemble it next Wednesday.
2. A couple in Pullman will need a small ramp within the next few weeks. I plan to inspect next week to see what they need.
Our volunteers are also helping the Lewis Clark Valley Habitat
with a family that moved to Clarkston and needs help reconfiguring a ramp from the VA they brought with them.
The Palouse Habitat office is open Monday-Friday 10:30 to 2:30 PM but may have reduced hours this week so call ahead before visiting.
