University of North Carolina Greensboro
Habitat for Humanity
SAL members from the University of North Carolina Greensboro Chapter gave of their time to volunteer with the Habitat for Humanity. The project assigned to the group was to put siding on a house. Members arrived early Saturday morning and began with a training session. Then they set to work, measuring the areas needing siding, cutting the siding to the correct size, and hammering it to the house.
Saudia Johnson, the Chapter President, said, “It was a great opportunity, as well as a humbling one. The future owner of the home was also there helping, so it meant a lot to him that people cared enough to help out.” Members were able to learn new skills and feel the accomplishment of quickly picking up those skills and being able to to put them to work to make something. The entire project of siding the house was finished that day.
