This Saturday, September 7, volunteers from the Marine Corps will be documenting their experience building a home with Lubbock Habitat for Humanity from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm at 2201 Duke Street.
The volunteer group will be comprised of current officers and new recruits from the Lubbock area. This day of service will be one of the first experiences for the new recruits before heading to boot camp. Recruits will finish framing, brace trusses and raise foam board on the home.
Sergeant Christopher Lucas became the Station Commander for the Lubbock recruiting office 10 months ago. Lucas looks to teach new recruits that philanthropy is an important aspect of military service. "We want to show people that we're a lot more than just fighters," he said.
This group will be one of several from the community to have a hand in building the 127th and final home in the Habitat subdivision. The home finishes a project that began over 26 years ago.
The entire experience will be captured for an upcoming tribute to the USMC. Volunteers are scheduled for two shifts, the first working from 9:00am to 12:00pm and the second from 1:00pm to 4:00pm. The construction site is located at 2201 Duke Street, Lubbock, Texas 79415.
