Toiletries and other personal items
Medication (in original containers)
Clothes you do not mind getting dirty/painted (usually you will wear this same set of work clothes everyday)
T-shirts (no tank-tops or mid-driffs)
Jeans (No SHORT Shorts) You can wear shorts, but remember you are on a construction site and jeans will provide better protection.
Sturdy work shoes
Shower Slippers (trust me....bring a cheap pair of flip flops for the shower)
Warm sweatshirt (it gets cold at night and sometimes at the construction site too)
Waterproof jacket/wind breaker/pancho
Socks and underwear
Framing Hammer! This is a must, don't buy a finishing hammer.
Safety Glasses or sunglasses with safety rating
Tool belt or nail pouch
2 paintbrushes and a paint roller.
What NOT to bring
drugs (including e-cigarrettes, hookah pens, or other substances that are illegal for minors to be in possession of), alcohol, weapons, fireworks, (you will be sent home if you bring these)
Anything valuable that you do not want to lose!
Jewerly, watches, cameras, portable speakers...etc.
There is no American cell phone service where we will be staying or working. If you do make a call it is $4/minute and data rates also will be similar. SunHouse leaders will have cell phones for emergencies, but please do not bring yours.
