helping our community. Habitat ReStore had an unusual project for us to help with. First, we donned work gloves and safety goggles, then it was "tool-time” (i.e., not the tools we typically use when volunteering). I chose an axe, and others grabbed sledgehammers and other various tools of destruction. Our job was to break down furniture, chairs, tables, tv stands, bookshelves, etc. that were no longer usable or salvageable. We then needed to fill a large dumpster with all the broken-down pieces. It was two hours of smashing, breaking, and hauling fun!
We also helped Respite Care with their fall field trip to The Bartels Farm. We were each paired with a precious kiddo and spent the afternoon at the pumpkin patch, playground, and hayride. It was an incredibly fulfilling time with some wonderful kids and the staff at Respite Care! Want to learn more about the ways Blue Margin helps the community? Click here for info.
