Last Friday folks from Steel String, YesterYears Brewery and Beer Study got together and volunteered their time to build houses with Habitat for Humanity, Orange County, NC. We put vinyl siding up and helped clear the worksite of scrap wood and vinyl. Everyone had a great time, we all plan on going back and helping more. Anyone aged 16+ can volunteer to build with habitat, no construction experience necessary. You will have lots of fun and learn valuable skills, all while helping provide much needed affordable housing. Pictured – Carly and Alfie securing vinyl panels.
