NIU – Monday

Sunshine greeted us this morning as we got up ready to tackle the first day of the week. Quite a change from last year’s first day when we had snow, ice and freezing weather. Toady the students spent their day at three different sites: a home repair site, Bailyesville Head Start and the Itmann Food Bank.

We returned to a home repair site outside of Ravencliffe that we were at the last week of the summer program. We did not have a chance to install a set of steps out the back door, giving the home owners a second exit in case of emergency. Today at the site the crew was able to set the posts and build the frame for the small 4×4 platform and cut the risers for the steps. We got a lot done today and should be able to finish up tomorrow.

A group of students left early in the morning and drove across the county to Baileysville to work with kids in the Head Start program. It is a great opportunity for the kids to have one-on-one attention and the students have a great time too!

The third group of volunteers spent the day at the Itmann Food Bank painting the floors in preparation for distribution day on Friday. The floors get painted with a special heavy duty floor paint since they see so much traffic each month.

It was a great first day and we look forward to tomorrow!
