It takes more than 6,000 dedicated volunteers to make our mission possible each year in Greater Indy. Though many folks spend just one day serving through their work, church, or civic organization, some individuals keep coming out to the build site to give their time and talent for our homeowners. Volunteers like Scott Anderson. Scott has spent 15 days volunteering on Habitat build sites so far this year!
Q&A with Scott:
Scott Anderson, on left, on a recent rehab project.
What is it about Habitat that keeps you coming back for more? I enjoy supporting a cause that help the community and I like building things.
What’s something new you have learned recently while you were volunteering? I have been exposed to remodeling and construction for years with Habitat and my own home. I was surprised this spring when we installed that hurricane straps. Do not know if its code now in Indiana.
If you had to use one word to describe your volunteer experience with Habitat, what word would you use? Gratifying.
What advice would you give to first time Habitat volunteers? No matter what your construction experience is come and enjoy the day. Plus there are opportunities in the office and ReStore.
Thank you, Scott, for all that you do to build strength, stability and independence through homeownership!
