March 13, 2015 – Members of the Ohio River Bridges project team partnered with Habitat for Humanity to help construct two homes in the area this past February. Among the volunteer team were workers from the Downtown Crossing and East End Crossing.
The group of volunteers met early in the morning in the south of Louisville, well equipped to fight the temperatures that day, which remained around 15 degrees. Habitat for Humanity representatives explained what they expected from the team and how each person could find their place to work to succeed in building the homes. The duties of the workers included hammering, sawing, moving wood floor panels, completing a 1000-square-foot floor deck and installation of thermal insulation and a 140-foot drainage system.
This day of volunteering for Habitat for Humanity allowed the project team to help families in the community and put their skills to work in another context than the Ohio River Bridges Project.
