Review for Habitat for Humanity International Inc, Massillon, OH, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I RETIRED IN 2007 AFTER BEING IN THE WORKFORCE FOR 44 YEARS AND NEVER BEING LAIDED OFF 1 DAY. I WANTED WAYS TO GIVE BACK AFTER GOD HAD BEEN SO GOOD TO ME.MY WIFE SAID "WHY NOT GIVE YOUR TIME TO HABITAT FOR HUMANITY?" THE MORE I THOUGHT ABOUT IT, I DECIDED IT MIGHT BE A GOOD FIT FOR ME. THE GROUP OF PEOPLE I MET AND WORKED WITH WERE CARING, AND LOVING PEOPLE WHO WANTED TO DO SOMETHING BIGGER THAN THEMSELVES. THEY USED THEIR GOD GIVEN SKILLS TO HELP THOSE WHO NEEDED AFFORDABLE HOUSING. WHAT AND OPPORTUNITY! THE BEST PART WAS THAT I HAD A CHANCE TO SHARE MY FAITH AND WITNESS TO OTHERS IN A REAL AND DEFINED WAY. I HAVE MET GREAT PEOPLE, SHARED HARD WORK, LEARNED HOW TO DEVELOP NEW SKILLS, AND SHARE REAL LIFE EXPERIENCES. IT HAS BEEN A JOY.
