Steilacoom Kiwanis, Key Club team to volunteer at Habitat for Humanity


On May 31st, 2014, the Kiwanis Club of Steilacoom and the adjoining Key Club were given the opportunity to volunteer with Habitat for Humanity. Habitat for Humanity builds or repairs houses for families with low-income, and provides decent, affordable housing. The build was located in Tukwila, and we were also joined with various other volunteers from surrounding areas. We also had Brian, who would be living in the house, accompany us for the build. It was a bright, sunny day and we all arrived 9 in the morning to begin our 6 hour workday. After we’ve stocked up on our refreshments, the site managers called us together to explain the plan for the day.
