Habitat for Humanity
Habitat for Humanity is a global non-profit organization that provides homes for low-income families. Habitat provides a "hand-up, not a hand out" to deserving low-income families who meet their criteria. A group of 19 volunteers from EPIC joined hands with Habitat leads to paint the inside of the house. Our team divided in groups to paint the different rooms. There was another house-build occurring 4 blocks away and Habitat crew took a number of our youth over there as well to help with assembly of the roof. Our team carried the formed roof structures over to the side of the house and lifted it in place. Overall, it was a wonderful experience and Habitat was kind enough to provide donuts for breakfast and pizza for lunch delivered to the site before everyone left for home.
