Habitat For Humanity Staff And Board Members Devote Day To Cleaning Up Glass Street Farms Neighborhood

Wednesday, November 16, 2016
A month devoted to celebrating family, friends, and demonstrating gratefulness, Habitat for Humanity of Greater Chattanooga staff and Board of Directors designated the second Friday of November to be a service to others.
More than 30 Habitat officials along with the Glass Street Collective staff spent eight hours picking up trash, removing brush and weeds from lawns, pressure washing sidewalks, completing rehab projects, and cultivating relationships with residents living in the Historic Glass Farms Neighborhood.
 
“We rely solely on volunteers to help us transform communities and build decent, energy efficient, and affordable homes for working families enrolled in Habitat for Humanity’s homeownership program,” said David Butler, executive director of Habitat for Humanity of Greater Chattanooga Area. “Each year, we devote a full day of service in November so that Habitat’s staff and Board of Directors can work alongside each other as a team to give back. It’s indeed a blessing to be a blessing!”

He and Maria should have been worn out, but if they were, they really showed very little sign of it. His energy level, for a guy that couldn’t have gotten more ... (click for more)
