Giving back to the community is something I am always trying to do and I am excited to start the conference today with NAR’s Habitat for Humanity volunteer build! Having been apart of the Habitat for Humanity National Capital Region (Ottawa) Committee for five years, I look forward to getting my hands and feet dirty on-site.
With Habitat for Humanity, it involves a group of individuals coming together to build better lives for others. As everyone knows, giving back to those in need is something that is extremely fulfilling. To see a group of people volunteer their time to help out a family in need is inspirational and something I am proud to be apart of. John Heywood’s saying – “Many hands make light work.” – is something that certainly will apply today.
This of course can’t all happen without the winning combination of several key organizations and people volunteering, whether it be on- or off-site. I believe that being a part of this build experience provides a sense of camaraderie amongst those involved, allowing us all to establish long-lasting relationships and a sense of accomplishment. It will also be exciting to see the high number of conference attendees participating and what their reasons were to take part in today’s build.
Stay tuned for some insight on my experience and the people behind today’s build!
