On Saturday, January 20th, ten members of the 204th JAOBC volunteered for Habitat for Humanity at their store in Charlottesville. The students assisted the regular staff with unloading and organizing furniture and other items in the store for three hours in the morning, contributing 30 volunteer hours in short order.
The Habitat Store, located at 1221 Harris Street in Charlottesville, is just one facet of the charity’s local operation. Businesses and individuals donate furniture and building supplies to the store, much of it never before used, and the store then sells these items to fund its core mission of building homes for the needy in Albemarle County. The Store has been in business for 13 years.
