I am sore today. Very sore.

Yesterday our human resources team got together and volunteered at a Habitat for Humanity construction project near our corporate headquarters. For those that don’t know, Habitat for Humanity helps people buy their first home and tries to make it so housing is affordable.

Our company supports this organization by donating windows and people to help with the builds. It is a great organization to support.

The team got there in the morning and started working the decking for the first floor and digging a trench around the foundation. I elected to help with the digging job while others started hammering and sawing.

It was a great experience to work with the team while learning something about home construction. We all are probably tired and sore like I am today, but the sacrifice to help make it so a family can have a home is so worth it.
