The Squirrels team traded its computers and headphones for work boots and tool belts last week.
Years ago, John Brandon began a journey to move back to Ohio to help take care of his sister, Brenda Johnson, and her family. During the travel, John suffered a stroke that left him physically challenged and stripped of his independence. Brenda took responsibility for John's care but found the task challenging in her two-story rental home with many health and safety hazards.
The Squirrels Habitat for Humanity project will give Brenda and John a safe, well-built, single-story home. Brenda has worked tirelessly to complete the Habitat program by herself, along with the wonderful volunteers that Habitat for Humanity provides. We were honored to spend a day helping such a deserving family, and we wish the best for Brenda, John and their entire family.
Also, #TeamSquirrels can now tote that we're (kind of) siding experts after our past two Habitat for Humanity volunteer days! Check out our photos to see the Squirrels team in action!
