Habitat for Humanity Tucson and Home Depot Vendors to Construct Homes

Tucson HFH

We were just part of a huge, combined effort to build homes in Tucson, AZ partnering with The Home Depot Foundation, Habitat for Humanity and 250 volunteers from all over the nation.

The team worked on 21 homes in 3 days.

April 11th through April 12th, 2011, more than 250 volunteers from The Home Depot Foundation, The Home Depot Hardware Departments and their vendor partners, and organizers from Habitat for Humanity Tucson worked on 21 houses doing construction projects, framing and landscaping in Habitat’s Corazon Del Pueblo development.

Allen, a consultant/project lead here at 4th Strand, explained his most memorable moment was when one of the home owners said at the table during lunch, “I never thought I would own a home of my own.” He explained these new owners aren’t getting a hand-out, in fact, the program and volunteers simply made owning a home… more affordable.

It’s always rewarding to be part of something big, where it matters. In the lives of others in need.

One box of our selection this morning

Jonathan, our favorite 4th Strand intern, went on a donut run this morning to one of the best bakeries in Atlanta. Actually… THE BEST bakery in Atlanta. Downtown Atlanta’s Sublime Donuts. Their story was just covered by AJC this month, Kamal Grant has been receiving national attention for his amazing sweet creations. They’ve been named the best bakery in America. That’s huge!

Ok… back to young Jonathan, being that he’s still a college kid he probably slept in a little more than he should have. Eleven co-workers were eagerly waiting for his… er the donut’s arrival. He made it before lunch. However, at 9AM there was an uprising and his cube was overturned. People get nasty when there’s donut talk. I know my wife does. Oops.
