Habitat and AmeriCorps Build New Partnerships to Impact Housing

Written by Sean Savage, AmeriCorps Blue Team member

In mid-February, Coalville was struck with a number of uncharacteristically large rain storms that caused flood damage to many of the houses in the area. These storms flooded streams and impeded the flow of many essential culverts that help maintain much of the normal overflow of water. In fitting with their commitment to national service, the AmeriCorps National Civilian Community Corps team working alongside Habitat for Humanity took time to prepare sandbags to prevent flood waters from causing damage within the community.

Big Changes at the ReStore

With a little help from our Friends!

As part of a community service project for school, Cameron gathered donations from generous Fresh Market shoppers in Park City then created First-aid kids for Habitat sites. Many thanks Cameron!
