If you’re handy with a hammer and want to volunteer your time in a foreign country, Habitat for Humanity of Sangamon County is having a couple of informational meetings.
As part of the Habitat for Humanity’s Global Village Program, volunteers will learn about traveling to Guatemala to spend ten to twelve days building homes to address the country’s current housing deficit of 1.2 million homes. This is the second year Habitat for Humanity of Sangamon County has led a Global Village volunteer team to Guatemala.
There are two informational meetings at 6:00pm on February 5th and February 19th at the Habitat office, 1514 West Jefferson. The meetings do not guarantee an individual’s spot on the trip, nor do they obligate volunteers to go.
