Volunteer for TEAM DAY Hendersonville May 22, 2010

On May 22, 2010 the Hendersonville Home Builders Association in conjunction with other regional HBA's along with Hendersonville Housing Assistance will join together for annual TEAM day. TEAM DAY stands for Together Everyone Achieves More. Over the last four years Amanda has participated in TEAM DAY each year. I have done a little of everything as a volunteer in the spirit of community. I have picked up trash and garbage and debris from a home that was littered so bad that the five kids living there couldn't play outside anymore, the family had not used a disposal system in some time. TEAM DAY volunteers cleaned up the property and arranged for them a regular pick-up for garbage. I helped the sweetest little lady inside her house one year and also cleaned out gutters for her. One TEAM DAY project was actually leveling and removing a house that was condemed and re-seeding the land so that the family could once again have an asset instead of a liability. Last year I worked on two TEAM DAY projects: one we laid carpet tiles in a house and the other I helped paint the exterior trim. Usually roof repair or basement leakage are typical issues that face TEAM DAY captains.

We are now having an open call for Volunteers for 2010 TEAM DAY. When you volunteer and show up for TEAM DAY come prepared to have a life experience. You will need sunscreen and work gloves, Clothes for heavy duty working, and the best community spirited attitude you can have. Families are encouraged to join in with kids of appropriate age for yard work. I look forward to working side by side with you on one of this years Hendersonville TEAM DAY projects as a volunteer.
