I was honored to volunteer with the Canadian Institute for Plumbing and Heating – Edmonton chapter, yesterday at the Habitat for Humanity Build in South Edmonton. ‘Habitat for Humanity Edmonton’ builds homes for hundreds of families in need of safe affordable housing across northern Alberta each year

Our CIPH group brought out over 15 people to site, and it was an amazing experience. We cut boards, used power tools, stood up on ladders, trudged through the mud and hopefully made a small difference.

We had a very thorough safety orientation, and all of the volunteers were served an amazing lunch by a local church.

The South Edmonton Habitat build was chosen as a ‘Jimmy Carter’ Work Project – which means that on July 9th, 92 year old Jimmy Carter, and 800 volunteers from around the world, will descend upon our city.

Although ‘Habitat for Humanity’ has some amazing and dedicated volunteers, they are always looking for more, and I encourage you, if you have ever wanted to donate your time or materials, to contact Habitat for Humanity.  https://www.hfh.org/

Thank you to Joe and CIPH Edmonton for organizing this day.
