A Little Wind and Rain Won’t Stop Build-A-Thon
The second week AmeriCorps’ first day on site saw a little bit of inclement weather, but a lot of progress was made on the homes all the same. As the dark clouds rolled in late in the day, volunteers came down from roofs and ladders for the sake of safety, but there was plenty of interior work to be done on most of the houses. Though construction shut down for the thunder and lightning, everyone was able to get to safety in plenty of time, and soon after, the clouds moved on. The brief showers proved insufficient to stop the 2015 AmeriCorps Build-A-Thon. Overnight, the storms intensified, leaving a few overturned signs and twisted banners, but the houses were unscathed and by the time the volunteers arrived, the sun had returned for another great day.
