A few months ago we painted a house in partnership with Rebuilding Together. Our volunteers are amazing, they figure out what paints, brushes, rollers, drop cloths, etc are necessary.  They organize a work force of enthusiastic helpers.  Everybody gets out of it… a shirt and the pride knowing that they have done something amazing for a person or family in need of assistance.  It’s amazing what good one can do by setting aside a single day, along with like minded people, to have such an impact on one’s own community.  Look for more of these types of opportunities in the future.
