ZSR helps Habitat for Humanity

Yesterday, members of ZSR’s staff answered the call from President Hatch to spend some time helping out at WFU’s Habitat for Humanity Houses. The location of the houses was in the south western edge of the city, so far from city center that even I (a person used to big cities) had to proclaim, “are we still in Winston-Salem?”

When we arrived on site, we were greeted by Tony from Habitat for Humanity, who worked with and remembered the ZSR volunteers from last year. Then we divided up into two teams and went into different houses to begin the day’s work. Our responsibilities were varied, but most of us touched our share of hammers, nails, ladders, caulk, a variety of electrical saws, lumber, and brooms. It was a great time, and a very worthwhile day. Prentice, Mary, Barry and Ellen also had the opportunity to work with the future homeowner of the house who was also volunteering yesterday.

We all would pat ourselves on the back, but I don’t think that any of us can get our arms to reach that way.

High fives all around to the team, Craig, Tim, Gretchen, Ellen, Carolyn, Susan, Barry, Mary Scanlon, Prentice and me. We had a great time and we managed to do some good work.

    What we lacked in raw talent, we made up for with ability to grasp new concepts, strong analytic skills and attention to detail :-) This was a wonderful group of ZSR’ers to work with!

    We are very proud of all of you. Speaking of attention to detail, hope none of this came up:

    Luckily, no one from OSHA was around, or we probably would have been ushered off the site immediately.
