Junior Nick Thornewill is one of the student volunteers this week. This is his third year to help. He said that the family they are helping has been moving from apartment to apartment and hasn’t had a permanent home.
“I came out here because it’s something I do, and I find it really awesome, and it’s something that makes me happy that I am helping some people out that don’t have a home,” Thornewill said.
Habitat for Humanity is a global nonprofit housing organization that works with local communities all over the United States and about 70 countries, according to its website. Habitat’s vision is for a world where everyone has a decent place to live.
“The kids feel proud and taker ownership in their work,” Hodges said.
