The second Gives Back trip of 2017 is complete! From July 12th – 15th, 12 of our staff members served at Habitat for Humanity of Sacramento, CA. Habitat for Humanity’s mission is to build affordable homes in partnership with families in need, supported by a host of volunteers, faith based organizations, donors and corporations for the betterment of our community. The team spent their time in Sacramento preparing the land for a new housing development by clearing out old underbrush and putting up a new fence.

We chose to partner with Habitat for Humanity of Greater Sacramento because of their proven track record of facilitating teams to give back for the betterment of our community.Austin Hermle
Putting up the new fence was no small feat – The soil was as hard as clay, there was an unmarked water main to work around, and the temperature was in the 90s all week! One of the highlights from the week was finding innovative solutions as a team. “There were a number of large roots growing right where we needed to put in the fence, so we had to figure out how to cut them out with the limited tools we had on hand”, said Austin, the Gives Back Team Leader.
As you can see, the team had a great week serving at Habitat for Humanity! And best of all, they were able to give back to an organization that has given so much to one of our very own.
