Although there was a bout scheduled for that very evening, some SVRG skaters gathered at the break of dawn to put in a day of community service building homes with Habitat for Humanity. Habitat was this month’s benefit charity, so in addition to providing some hands to help during the day, SVRG also donated our portion of the proceeds from the bout to Habitat.
It was a productive day for the SVRG ladies as we helped finish a roof, install frames and doors, and erect siding. The Habitat experience is particularly rewarding because you get to work alongside seasoned volunteers and skilled construction workers as well as the families themselves, who work on site to build their own homes.
SVRG thanks the Habitat volunteers and coordinators for their hospitality during our day of labor. We look forward to returning in May!
