100+100: Continuing Our Work with Habitat
Sep 24, 2014
Since 100+100 started, more than 20 Centerliners have spent the day working with Habitat for Humanity of Wake County. We’ve devoted our time to constructing a storage space for the food pantry Read and Feed and building two different homes in Raleigh.
Here, we’ve captured our most recent experience – hammering supports for an attic floor, hanging insulation, laying down tarpaper, all contributing our efforts to Habitat’s mission: A world where everyone has a decent place to live.
“This chance to help put a roof over someone’s head (literally) got me outside my comfort zone – far, FAR outside my comfort zone,” said Adam Zammiello. “It was very humbling and VERY gratifying. Experiences like this really help put things into perspective and make you focus a little more on what you have – not what you don’t.”
“Today was an exhilarating and exhausting day of sun-baked hammer slamming atop the prettiest almost-built rooftop in Augusta Crossings,” said Jennifer Urenia.
“I got to spend a whole day outside, made friends with a circular saw, and did work that will have a direct benefit to someone,” said Alyson Newby. “It was a great experience and something I would definitely do again. ”
