The Sweet Smell of Summer… and Carpentry!
The summer is not an excuse to be a a couch potato. Get up and help out your
neighboring communities. With Habitat for Humanity you can help a family have a decent, safe place to live. Habitat for Humanity builds for people in need regardless of race or religion, and welcome volunteers and supporters from all backgrounds. The houses are simple, decent, and affordable to low-income families around the world so even if you are not staying in Sarasota county for break, you can still join this non-profit organization. Families left homeless by natural and financial disasters often face dire housing situations as they struggle to rebuild their lives. Habitat for Humanity’s many programs provide shelter and housing solutions to help these families recover. You will be under trained supervision, so there is no need to be an “expert builder.” Ringling College of Art and Design partners up with this organization during the course of the school year, so be on the look out in the fall for more opportunities.
