Women Build

A few weeks ago we had an amazing opportunity come up, we were invited to participate in the Women Build project here in our hometown through the Habitat for Humanity. It was an amazing experience. This home was for a single mom of 5. I do not know how many of you are familiar with this program but the family receiving this home has to do a lot of labor hours for their home. This home is being built for her through donations and the helping hands of the community about 75% of the home is built through volunteers. We had such an amazing experience. We learned how to install windows, how to cut and place the trim around the windows and that working out in the HOT sun is not very fun.

I have realized that the older I get the harder it is for me to stand the heat. We did about 6 hours of community service. If you have not volunteered though this program I urge you to check it out. You hear the wonderful stories of the families receiving these homes and how they help build their home. It is amazing to me what a group of women can do when they come together.

We love giving back to our community, what are you favorite volunteer spots or organizations?
