Habitat for Humanity - Fullerton Build

Took a vacation day last week to volunteer with Habitat for Humanity building homes for low-income families in the city of Fullerton, California. Somehow I had imagined we’d be painting, sanding, planting, or doing something else that required little or no actual skill, but I was way off.

We were asked to do things like move tons of lumber and boards over pipe ditches, build window and door frames from scratch, and install floor boards atop an exposed second story while balancing precariously on floor joists. It was hard work, but I must admit it was fun.

Looking for a way to make a difference in your community? Visit the Habitat for Humanity website and find out if there’s a chapter near you. They’re always looking for volunteers. Nail guns for everyone!

    I have actually volunteered for HFH. Although it was not really me volunteering, our High School volunteered, so we were kind of forced to do it, but it was an enlightening experience!

    I agree – that’s awesome!

    It’s great that you did that. I’ve both blogged on behalf of them (Blogathon 2005) and volunteered.

    I think I love you. I’ve been wanting to do that for years. Kudos for doing it, I wish you’d posted more about how you signed up and what it was like.

    If I were home I’d be all over it.

    Well, when you’re back in town, look up your local chapter from the link in the post above. They’ll notify you of all the projects going on in your area and together you can schedule times to volunteer.
