The experience you get building a home with Habitat for Humanity isn’t always easy to explain.
Giving your time, or talent, or other support toward building a home, and, by extension, toward building a future for someone, isn’t simple to put into words.
Sometimes you don’t need to.
There is a great video courtesy of the Denmark-based Team Generous that does a great job of giving a glimpse into what Habitat for Humanity is about.
During the week of July 12 Itasca County Habitat for Humanity hosted the Unitarian Universalist Society of Geneva Illinois (UUSG). The group of 34 people framed a new home in Grand Rapids.
“This is the seventh year the group has volunteered to travel all these hours to help build safe, decent and affordable housing in Itasca County,” said Scott Stein, Habitat Executive Director. “They’re making a big impact.”
The group has 34 members this year. They worked approximately 1,200 hours. The UUSG stayed in the Grand Rapids Assembly of God Church. Other local churches provided meals at the work site during the week.
This is where awesomeness happens. GiveMN links generous people like you with organizations working to make Minnesota a better place. And they do it by making giving simple, rewarding and fun.
