The Car Donation Wizard staff took the meaning of hard work to the next level last week. The first group of our volunteers put up not one but TWO walls during a Habitat for Humanity Build in Bristol, Rhode Island. (over-achievers!)
Always inspired by the work our charity partners do, we set up volunteer events throughout the year for our staff to get involved and to see where the money from the vehicle donations go. In June we participated in Relay for Life and we had a blast!
Lack of experience did not deter our volunteers, who by the end of the day were experts at using nail guns, saws and framing houses! Check out our team and some of the work we did:

The first of four volunteer days for Habitat for Humanity East Bay RI was an astounding success! Our physical fitness was tested and we were happy that they didn’t take it easy on us! At the end of the day our volunteers felt pride in their work and for the work we do everyday for all of our Charity Partners.
It’s not every day that we get to see the fruits of our hard work and labor materialize and I think that, coupled with the energy and enthusiasm of the project manager, builders, volunteers and staff was a recipe for success!
Habitat for Humanity works with families in need to provide affordable housing. Volunteers provide most of the labor and donors provide money and materials for the build. Donors are just as important as volunteers and this build could not have happened without them.
