Helping people can make you feel like you’re on top of the world—especially when you’re literally 40 feet in the air!

On Day 7 the Phoenix Elves bundled up for building at the new Haultain Habitat for Humanity site. Kaila, Kirsten and Sara geared up and spent the day on the roof, while the rest of the team and guests Marlys, Charlie and Sara from the Riders framed, hauled and busted their butts building.

Habitat for Humanity helps families break the cycle of poverty by engaging them in home ownership. Once homes are built they are sold to families with no down payment and interest-free mortgages. The mortgage payments then go towards funding more homes for Regina families in need.

The most rewarding part of the day was working alongside future resident Muhammad, who has been putting hours of service in to build what will one day be a multi-unit home for 62 families.
