Calling for Experienced Volunteers!
Would you like to be a part of improving the life of an 82 year old veteran? Habitat will be partnering with team Rubicon, a disaster response volunteer organization, to roof and side a home allowing the homeowner to age in place. We need experienced volunteers and leaders to help support groups during a September 29th and 30th. If interested, please contact us ASAP! Let's serve him as the homeowner has served the us.
What Happened Last Week
With volunteer groups Guardian Life, General Dynamics, and dedicated Core Volunteers, HFH started siding the North and South exterior walls, continued siding on the East and West exterior walls, and made progress with second story interior walls at the Dalton house.
"I think you would all agree that it is a very rewarding experience and of course you all have these newfound skills that you developed along the way. Just don’t tell your significant other or your honey do list will grow by leaps and bounds. We had a great team this year and really enjoyed participating in this with all of you."
- Scott Raaymakes, Guardian Life
