Thankful Thursday – Habitat for Humanity

On last evening at my Urban League Young Professionals meeting, we did our introductions by stating our name and our passion – one of my passions is volunteering and helping people! Last week I had the distinct pleasure of participating in a Habitat for Humanity project through my company’s Community Action Volunteer Team! The weather was perfect! The team was great! We had a very productive day, although tiring! Habitat for Humanity is for such a good cause, and I really appreciate my company for soliting volunteers to put in a days work to make a deserving family’s dream of home ownership come true!

I didn’t do anything too strenuous, but they did entrust me with a drill and a broom, no hammers LOL! Here a few pics:

 

Hard at work on the address!

 

A girl with a drill! I WORK!

 

I made the mailbox look GOOD!

 

It's all coming together!

 
 
I’m thankful for the opportunity to volunteer, whether on company time or my time! I’m looking forward to our fall Habitat for Humanity project!
 
Do you volunteer? What are you thankful for today?
