Together we build

Habitat House

From September 19 – October 3 Habitat for Humanity volunteers in South Seattle and East King County participated in their first annual Habitat Build-a-Thon.  I was lucky enough to be able to volunteer at the above site on September 26th, located in Rainier Valley. See those yellow shingles on the far-left – those were painted by yours truly! I have to admit, I’ve never actually worked on top of a scaffolding before and it can be a little scary at first.

As of this morning, the Build-a-Thon has raised $98,218 from our amazing supporters. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank my personal supporters too – Kate S., Marilou U. and Nikki H.! Together we raised enough to purchase 10 2x4s! And if you’ve ever helped build a home, you know that you can never have too many 2x4s. Your support will help to continue building affordable housing like the one seen above which will be the new home for three families in need once completed. Thank you so much for your support!
