RV Project Opportunity

Hanceville, British Columbia

Forest fires struck parts of British Columbia in July 2017, burning for more than two months. MDS is building a new home for a couple in Hanceville, about 100 km (62 miles) west of Williams Lake. RV (Recreational Vehicle) volunteers will be able to park their RVs right on the property of the new build and enjoy the gorgeous mountain scenery. We are looking for RV volunteers who wish to serve for one to 3 weeks. All RV volunteers provide their own groceries and do their own cooking.

July 15 – 21 – One (1) week spot available for volunteers with an RV or without an RV as there is an MDS RV available for you to move into.

August 5 – 23 – One (1) 3 week spot available for volunteers with an RV. 

For more information or to serve please call:
Evelyn Peters-Rojas at 866- 261-1274 or email epetersrojas@mds.mennonite.net
