Over the past two and half years, hundreds of volunteers have built 9 cottages at the Second Wind
site in Newfield to provide shelter and a supportive
environment to formerly homeless men.
This spring, the goal is to add a small patio area to each cottage so that the residents have a place
to enjoy the outdoors.
Volunteers of all skill levels are needed.
We will be leveling the ground and setting forms so that a concrete pad can be poured.
If we have enough volunteers, there are other projects at the property that we can assist with as well.

Saturday May 7.
We will be starting with coffee at 9:00 AM and lunch will be provided at noon.
CFP CARE Day events provide a wonderful opportunity to meet other Christians and to serve others in our community.
We hope that you will be able to join us on May 7th at Second Wind Cottages in Newfield.
Our last CARE Day in Sept 2016 was a great success.
