The first half of the day was spend helping to clean out an old building that used to house a publishing company from the early 1900's, currently being used as Harrisburg Habitat's warehouse. The building was being prepped for sale, the affiliate having a potential buyer of the 1/5 acre property.
Later in the morning the group traveled to a second location, a house that suffered some minor fire damage. The enthusiastic group was excited to tear down walls, ceilings, and plaster in preparation for the house to be remodeled. Despite the surprise snow storm in the middle of April, everyone enjoyed the hard work and fun that the day of volunteering had brought.
