Habitat For Humanity

I am finally getting involved with our local HFH chapter. I have been putting it off during college, but now I no longer have any excuses left. HFH of Greater Lowell is building a handicap-accessible single family home in Bedford.

Today I worked with Karl on organizing and re-stacking a pile of dimensional lumber at the site. What seemed like a simple job took the entire day, especially given the 20 degree weather and snow-covered site. There were a total of twelve volunteers, each doing his or her task. Despite this, I find working with a group of dedicated volunteers working towards a common goal to be supremely rewarding, and I look forward to next Saturday.
