Habitat For Humanity Blount County

Nov 30, 2016

On October 22nd a group of individuals wanted to give back to the community by helping the Blount County, TN Habitat for Humanity office. Habitat gets many volunteers to go out in the community to refurbish, paint and construct homes which leaves precious little time for the office to be maintained. This collection of volunteers from FedEx Freight at the KNX center asked what we could do to help and help free up time for them. Along with the executive director of Habitat for Humanity in Blount county Kathy Jackson we took on the challenge of painting their office building for them.

Habitat For Humanity Of Marion County, Inc

Nov 30, 2016

The Palmetto District met in Ocala, Florida at a Habitat job site at 7:30 am on Tuesday, November 1st, 2016. With the help of skilled contractors on site to train us, our district installed windows, hung insulation, framed walls, and the list goes on. It was a very meaningful experience and a chance to give back to wonderful cause. I must say it was funny to watch a bunch of Sales Reps attempt to build a house. We had a great time and look forward to volunteering again next year.

We spent the morning pumpkin picking, taking toy wagon hay rides, playing in the leaves and doing arts and craft projects with elementary school age children. Leake & Watts is a not-for-profit agency committed to addressing a myriad of challenges that confront individuals and families dealing with poverty, disabilities, and a lack of access to education and basic services.
