Members of North Carolina A&T State University’s Office of Facilities, other university volunteers and the local Habitat for Humanity, braved the cold air and muddy ground on Jan. 16 because they were determined to fulfill their commitment to help a local family build their home.
The team worked from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., charged with the specific task of installing vinyl siding. While some took measurements others cut material and some installed. The systematic process proved to be extremely proficient. While the Office of Facilities’ involvement in the home’s construction is part of the university’s overall commitment to conduct 125 service projects on behalf of the 125th Anniversary, it’s also the continuation of an ongoing relationship of service between the university and the Greensboro community.
