Giving Back: SBA CT Spends Day with Greater Springfield Habitat for Humanity
Springfield, MA— The day started with donuts. Carpet flew from second story windows, invading brush was chopped down to the roots, and pizza was devoured at the Habitat for Humanity build day on Friday, Oct. 3rd.
Ten volunteers from SBA Connecticut’s office spent the day with Habitat for Humanity’s Construction Manager, Kristopher McKelvie, preparing an abandoned home for a revitalization of new finishes. SBA volunteers had jobs that ranged from removing carpet, to clearing out the basement filled with old toys and clothes, to removing faceplates of outlets and patching holes in preparation for paint.
Volunteers also worked on exterior landscaping, as the lawn and garden had overgrown and was invading neighbor’s yards. A great time was had by everyone involved.
Greater Springfield Habitat for Humanity services the Greater Springfield area in Western Massachusetts. To learn more about the organization, or to volunteer, please see the Greater Springfield Habitat for Humanity Website, www.habitatspringfield.org.
