Donations of time and money are sought for a "72-hour extreme makeover" job to renovate the longhouse facility at Alexandra Neighbourhood House.
The three-day renovation will happen from Oct. 18 to 20, organizers said Wednesday.
The budget for the around-the-clock effort is $300,000, and many volunteers - for carpentry, plumbing, landscaping, painting and more - are needed, along with donations of supplies and cash.
Organizers of the initiative say "Camp Alexandra," as the site at Crescent Beach is sometimes known, has several buildings that require significant structural and aesthetic upgrades and renovations, particularly the longhouse, built in 1979.
The neighbourhood house provides important services for children, young families, older adults and newcomers to the community.
To get involved in the renovation effort, call 604-535-0015 or visit the facility's website, www.alexhouse.net.
