SCRIPT – Habitat for Humanity of Mahoning Valley
Fulfilling! Gratifying! Meaningful! Three words to describe how I felt after a long day of volunteering for Habitat for Humanity. Who knew by just picking up a hammer how much I could change someone else’s life? Who knew by just picking up a hammer how much I could change my own life? The feeling of helping someone in need is immeasurable. As the saying goes, “You have not lived until you have done something for someone who can never repay you.” That is what Habitat for Humanity is all about, helping those who cannot help themselves. Since 1976, Habitat for Humanity has provided assistance with the building of houses, community, and hope, so pick up a hammer today and help change lives.
