Habitat For Humanity
Last week I volunteered for Habitat for Humanity through the networking group Women In Design. The Metro Denver Habitat for Humanity is currently working on the Bails Townhome Community consisting of 24 units. Our task of the day was to finish insulating the houses. Most of the insulation was finished the day before but we had to go into each unit and add insulation between the rafters and in the crawl spaces. Honestly, I would of preferred to be framing or painting but I was happy to lend a hand. On this day, there were 50 volunteers and this number ranges from 50-100 any given day. They have a great crew of young Americorp workers that are the leaders on the projects and explain how to do all the tasks and keep people working. It was a good day and something I've always wanted to do. I hope to volunteer for Habitat more in the future.
