Atlanta Volunteers for Habitat for Humanity

By Brittany Miron

A team of 16 from the Syska Atlanta Office had the privilege of participating in the annual Clark Howard Habitat for Humanity Build on Saturday, January 30th. We worked alongside the homeowner Lawanda, who will be living there with her two sons. She grew up in this community and both she and her kids went to school down the street from her new home. Our duties included putting up siding, caulking, as well as decking, felting and shingling a roof. Our group worked tirelessly and by the end of the day we came out ahead of schedule! Overall, it was a challenging but rewarding day, and I was encouraged to be a part of such a terrific team of people.
