Volunteers make up 80 percent of Habitat for Humanity’s workforce. That’s why it can be a daunting task to try and recruit people to donate their time. It sometimes takes a special event to remind both the affiliate and potential volunteers of why Habitat does the work that it does.
This month that event was Building on Faith, sponsored by Thrivent Financial. The month-long campaign sought to connect Habitat affiliates with their local faith partners and encouraged volunteers to be the hands and feet of Jesus in their neighborhoods by helping to build on a Habitat house.
