Literally, we got off to a great start on our first workday at the Pena home! We met Adam, Charis, their children, and Charis’ parents and brother from Texas who also pitched in. We did lots of interior framing, demolition of interior walls and flooring, dump runs, lumber provisioning, and we helped install a new front door. At mid-day our volunteers enjoyed a delicious lunch, generously hosted by Casey’s Crab Co.
In May and June, our teams helped rebuild homes in Houston, resulting from Hurricane Harvey, and Baton Rouge, which was devastated by unprecedented flooding in 2016. In both cities, we partnered with SBP (formerly the St. Bernard Project), a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping disaster-impacted communities recover.
