We helped build a home for a family of six from Ethiopia

It’s amazing what a small group of dedicated volunteers can accomplish in just one day! On Friday, October 13th, the Two Or More community of volunteers helped build a Habitat For Humanity home in Blaine, MN. We vapor-sealed the basement floor, moved sheetrock, and wrapped the entire exterior of the home. Some of us got WAY outside our comfort zone: wielding sharp blades, climbing ladders, swinging hammers from scaffolding, and hanging house wrap from the rooftop. What a great experience – pushing us to new heights, quite literally!

What made this event all the more meaningful was the fact that we got to work side-by-side with the buyer of the home: a family from Ethiopia who welcomed their fourth child only two weeks ago. Next spring, they will move out from their apartment, and into their new home!

What a privilege to be part of the home-building process, and make a life-changing impact. All because local business people – many who didn’t even previously know each other! – took time away from the office to come together around a good cause.

We are incredibly grateful for our corporate supporter – Bigfoot Analytics – who made a significant donation to Habitat For Humanity in support of this Two Or More project.
