The KEEN-Terns (a.k.a. KEEN interns) were out in full force on July 19th to volunteer with Habitat for Humanity Portland/Metro East. The KEEN-Terns and Habitat staff lent a hand to help make homeownership a reality for families in need. The volunteers spent much of the day installing siding on the house and installing scaffolding.
It feels great to get out with KEEN and lend a hand. The materials we are using are of high quality and we are told the building should last at least 150 years. It has also been outfitted with utilities and materials that can keep the house running on $1.50 a day. It makes me feel good knowing we are helping out and being green at the same time. - Colton Rice, KEEN Marketing Intern
