Lending more than just a hand
August 8, 2012
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - The Army Contracting Command Redstone Arsenal - Colorado Springs Contracting Directorate's team-building exercise resulted in more than an increase in esprit-de-corps. It helped create a home.
Members of the directorate volunteered their services to help Habitat for Humanity. The team helped construct portions of a home in the Woodmen Vista development. Woodmen Vista is a local development that offers affordable housing to low-income families.
While shovels and power drills were busy outside under the sunny Colorado blue sky, another ACC-RSA team volunteered in the shade of the Habitat for Humanity's ReStore. The ReStore's mission is to convert charitable donations into cash for use by Pikes Peak Habitat for Humanity to construct affordable homes.
According to L.R. Thrasher, director, ACC-RSA CSCD, through selfless service and team work, the ACC-RSA Colorado Springs Contracting Directorate gained not only a deeper awareness and appreciation of the actions that affect their community, but also developed a more cohesive and efficient team.
