Twelve member of the IBJI Rehabilitation staff recently took part in a build day at Habitat for Humanity of Lake County.
After learning about the safety requirements from the Habitat staff members, we were off to work. Our staff began by shingling one of the sheds that accompany each Habitat house. After completing the shed (in record time according to the Habitat staff), we moved on to framing walls for the houses that Habitat provides to Lake County residences.
Throughout the rainy Saturday, the IBJI staff worked hard but had a great time. Everyone was very familiar with how to hammer a nail and learned to work as a team more effectively. At the end of the day, our staff felt a sense of accomplishment in addition to the aches and pains from the hard work.
We would like to thank Habitat for Humanity for allowing us to volunteer and recommend anyone interested in helping a worthy cause to contact the Habitat for Humanity of Lake County. They can only provide help to those in need with our help!
