    Giving hardworking volunteers a fun break

    Day 278

    Get Some Air

    Some of the hardest working folks we met in Texas were the teams from All Hands. They’re helping families with the first, absolutely critical step in rebuilding their lives – emptying homes of the drywall and other materials that are harboring mold and rot.

    They call it mucking and gutting. It’s a very hard day’s work, and a lot of the All Hands volunteers have been at it for weeks now. They rise early, drive out to their work sites and go hard all day long. When they get back to their housing, they get a quick bite to eat and then many of them are to sleep by 8pm. The next day they do it all again.

    We wanted to help the All Hands crew in Corpus Christi change things up a bit AND do something to show how much we all appreciate their work. When we asked them what that might be, the answer was swift and decisive: trampoline park.

    So, on Day 278, we sent the All Hands team for an evening of play at the Get Air trampoline park. For a couple of hours they got to let loose, have fun and appreciate one another in a totally new way.

    It’s truly amazing what the All Hands team is doing. Day in and day out they are sacrificing their time, energy and their own lifestyle to help those in need. It’s important that they had a day to celebrate all they have accomplished. And we hope this moment of joy and fun boosted their spirits and helped them feel appreciated for all their hardwork.
