If you’re looking for something different to do, plan a day with Cover.
Cover helps individuals and families on home repair projects they struggle to do themselves like weatherization, ramps, etc. I’ve worked on two projects and look forward to doing more in the future when my children are a bit older.
Cover will tell you where to meet them (locations vary around the Upper Valley). Hat, gloves, sun screen, snack, water may be all you need. They provide the rest – safety equipment, materials, tools etc. Just bring a willingness to help others and learn; then you’ll be good to go.
I love that you don’t need experience. They’ll show you how to hammer, use a drill, use a saw – whatever you feel comfortable with – they’ll show you.
The host provides lunch for the volunteers. It’s a good time to sit, relax, and share stories.
Maybe you’re lifting wood, painting a fence, helping to install a new toilet, fixing a hole in a floor, installing siding, fixing a roof. You’ll get back at it and get to see the fruits of your hard work at the end.
Both times I’ve felt like the experience gave me so much more than I gave of myself. I learned new construction skills, got out of the house, helped a family in need, and worked with others – a perfect day.
