I did my first volunteer sign ups with Habitat for Humanity today. After completing the orientation, I was waiting for an email that confirmed I had been entered in their system, but since it’s been a week, I decided to just go ahead and start signing up.
The ReStores in Denver are where old, reclaimed, and donated building supplies are for sale. There are actually three stores in Denver, and I decided to sign up for one to get started.
June 2, first day off, is my first day of work. I actually picked a second day the next week, and I’ll try to do at least one a week moving forward after that.
One of the main things I’ve always heard about with Habitat is their builds of new housing. I had been looking forward to this, but coming off knee surgery, I was a little worried when I’d be able to start. However with the knee doing well, some outside chores this weekend, I think I’m ready to go.
Well, not now, but in a few weeks. I volunteered for my first shift on Jun 12. There aren’t a lot of builds going on in Denver right now, but I’ll keep my eyes open and hopefully I’ll get involved in a few more.
