This quarter the TRIAD team volunteered with Habitat for Humanity – Mid Ohio on September 26th and October 18th. Thanks to Lauren Voiers for organizing both volunteer days and to Brent, Maggie, Meaghan, Morgan E., and Trevor for spending their Saturdays in the community.
Construction days involve a variety of projects to ultimately help build or repair a home for a local family in need. At the beginning of the day, Project Leads guided us through goals and what needed to be accomplished. They also addressed information about the family who would be moving into the house upon completion. In one of the houses that we worked on, we learned that the family of five who would be moving in has three children who all currently sharing a bedroom. The oldest daughter had let Habitat Leaders know that she’s so excited to have her own bedroom. It’s nice knowing that what we’re doing can help change the lives of families in the community.
Projects we worked on included building and putting up a wall, adding soffit to gables and putting up the finished gable as a team, and other miscellaneous tasks. COVID-19 guidelines were followed with temperature checks, masks, and social distancing. Gloves, hard hats, protective eye wear, and tools were provided. After months of virtual meetings and working from home, it was exciting to work together safely as a team.
Thank you to Habitat for Humanity, we will be back next year!
