Council 8600

April Improve a Home

I request all brother knights who are able to participate in this year's "April Improve a Home" project on Saturday, April 21.

I especially ask those of you who joined KOC - 8600 this past year, and probably haven't heard about one of the Council’s most engaging Community Service Projects.  April Improve a Home is all about helping homeowners in need, most commonly elderly, widows, or people with any circumstances that make regular home upkeep a challenge.

We meet at OSMH at 8am, for final coordination and instructions, and head out to project sites from there.  If you don’t have other commitments for April 21st, I hope you will mark your calendars and join me in supporting this heart-warming community service opportunity.

Please let me ([email protected] or 703-200-8375) know your availability and interest, and/or sign up directly below.

Thank you for your participation in 2018 April Improve a Home!


Release forms HERE

As has been the case in the past, volunteers will be required to submit signed VOLUNTEER'S AGREEMENT AND RELEASE FROM LIABILITY forms. Parents of minors must submit signed copies of both an AUTHORIZATION FOR PARTICIPATING MINOR RELEASE FROM LIABILITY form and a MEDICAL TREATMENT AUTHORIZATION FOR PARTICIPATING MINOR form. I’ve attached blank copies of all three forms. Please complete them prior to April 21st and bring them with you. (I know this is a pain; but, we have no choice.) When you arrive at OSMH, please find your project captain and give him your forms.
