Doug and Chris Brochu sandwich in good friend Hayley Kiyoko as they participate and host the 2011 Youth Build for Habitat for Humanity in Pacoima, Calif., over the weekend.
The brothers exclusively invited JJJ to the event to chat and learn more about the project.
“We’re here to encourage young kids and teens to give back to their community and build some homes. And really get involved. When we [Chris and I] approached Habitat, we said ‘You know it was fun putting up a wall and putting nails in stuff, but we really want to build. We wanted to get dirty,” Doug shared.
Chris told us about all the projects that were going on, “We’re doing everything from building shelves, putting up door frames, cleaning windows and planting gardens. We have all these different people of different ages just coming together and working for their community.”
Hayley added about her tool of choice: “I have a massive nail gun that is fired up and ready to go. Don’t get me upset,” she jokingly warned.
Check out our video and pics below, plus stay tuned all week for more about the build!
Chris Brochu bangs the drums as younger brother Doug shows off his artistic side as they attend the 2011 Time for Heroes Celebrity Picnic held at Wadsworth Theater on the Veteran Administration Lawn on Sunday (June 12) in Los Angeles.
We love celebs who give back — and brothers Doug and Chris Brochu are giving back big!
The brothers have teamed up to host and chair the 2011 Youth Build for Habitat For Humanity, an event which unites young TV and film stars with youth around the Los Angeles area to help build new homes for working families.
Doug and Chris already have a solid team — Ariel Winter, Nolan Gould, Ty Panitz, Parris Mosteller and Hayley Pullos — but they’re greedy. They want more hands on their team!
That’s where you come in. If you live in the Los Angeles area and want to give back to the community, you can participate in the 2011 Youth Build (ages 9 and over) which will be held in Pacoima, Calif., on Saturday, June 18th.
Hitting shelves on Tuesday, May 24th, the extended edition not only features 10 amazing original songs, but you’ll also get to see the extended performance of â€• “Livinâ€™ on a High Wire” and an exciting Rock-Along version of the movie that allows fans to sing along, with lyrics to all the songs.
Naomi told JJJ that “Livin’ On A High Wire” was actually her favorite performance!
