During my second service year, I volunteered with Habitat for Humanity of the Chesapeake. It was an all around great experience; I got to learn a lot of new things, I felt like I was part of their team, and got to see the impact of the work that I was doing.
I had to move to a suburb of Indianapolis, though, so I got in touch with Habitat for Humanity of Greater Indianapolis and last Friday got back to swinging a hammer. Once again, it was a really great experience. I got to meet some new people and knock the rust off of my framing hammer. I’m going to sign up for a few more builds this month, and hopefully stay relatively injury free.
