On Friday June 3rd, members of the KC Tool team stepped out of the office to volunteer for Habitat For Humanity of Kansas City. If you are a regular reader, you know that this is not our first time on a Habitat For Humanity job site. The first experience last fall was so rewarding (and fun!) that we decided to do it again. We were just blocks from our previous site, so many of us were able to drive by the completed home we worked on last year on the way our newest project.
Last year, we worked on one of the hottest days of the summer. This was a much different story. It was just about perfect with almost no clouds and 78 degrees. Though we were all on the same block, there was a lot to get done, so we split up into various tasks around the site. Some painted, some installed soffit, while others grabbed a caulking gun or a broom. We did our best to make the most of our day and we got a lot accomplished.
Bonus! Our job site was near the legendary Arthur Bryant’s BBQ, one of the pillars of Kansas City’s meaty calling card. We couldn’t help ourselves and as usual, it was delicious. If you are ever in KC, it is a must stop, though we have more than a few options for great BBQ. Give us a call and we will gladly give you our opinions on who has the best.
We at KC Tool encourage you to volunteer. There is a need for people everywhere. It doesn’t take much to be a significant part of your local community and lift someone’s spirits. From the poorest neighborhoods to the most affluent communities, positive action and real change are always possible.
