‘Tis the season for giving. Amber Faust donated her time and construction skills to help build a house in Stow for a family in need last Saturday. Amber is a volunteer for the Summit County Habitat for Humanity. She has been with the organization for several years, joining when she was a student at Kent State University.
Amber and the other volunteers were able to finish the sheathing insulation on the house, which is on schedule to be completed in March 2013. She will also be participating in another build day in February.
In addition to helping with the main build, Amber also volunteers with the Youth United program. This program is geared for younger volunteers ranging in age from 5-25. Habitat for Humanity volunteers must be at least 18 to be allowed on the build site so the Youth United program gets younger volunteers involved by building picnic tables to present to the families who receive new homes. Amber has been helping her young volunteers cut pieces of wood for the group to assemble.
Good Work Amber!
