Who:   Members of the community joining with Almost Heaven Habitat for Humanity, the men and women of NIOC Sugar Grove, Reservist Scott McDonald, and YOU!

Rebecca- when I see pictures like this, I think of when they used to have barn raisers to help each other out. This is truly a worthwhile organization where everyone can actually see the fruits of their labors.

Rebecca, Habitat does such good work in the community.  Nice to hear the Dept. of Defense is getting involved.  My office is sponsoring a "Make a difference day" in November to go out into the community and make repairs on homes of the elderly who can not do the work themselves; painting stairs, ramps, gutter cleaning...whatever is needed.
