I love Habitat for Humanity. I have always felt drawn to its philosophy, its structure and its experiences. After volunteering on several Habitat sites, mostly in the Twin Cities but also one memorable project in Taos, New Mexico, I decided to join the Carpenters Club and become a sustaining donor. My modest gifts have been automatically withdrawn from my bank account quite painlessly every year since (I think) 2002.
Please note that I am 81 years old now, and my first Habitat work experience occurred when I was in my early 60s!
