This past week, we saw a large and incredibly powerful hurricane pass through our state. Many of our neighbors homes were impacted by historic flooding, downed trees, and loss of power. We also saw our community come together to feed families, offer each other respite from the heat, and support the first responders working hard to restore our neighborhoods.
As the lights (and air conditioners) slowly begin to turn back on, let's continue working hand in hand to help our neighbors. There is still work to be done and we're exactly the right people to do it. This week, sign up for a volunteer event right here in our community. Spend the day feeding families who lost all of their food or cleaning up a park that you love. You could even come out and swing a hammer on one of our build sites.
Neighbors helping neighbors goes a long way, and we're all neighbors.
