DAY TWO: Hog House Building Project

DG is building a hog house for Haven Human with the support of the Home Depot Foundation.

Our Tuesday group continued the project the Thursday group started! We talked to the boys about what it means to build with God -- that when we build on HIM, the rock, we can weather any storm.

“Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock.The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock." Matthew 7:24-25

We jumped in the DG bus and headed to Haven Humane. Upon arriving, director Jim Lewis took the boys on a tour of the property while the Home Depot Foundation team-members and Delfina set up the construction site. We got to see all the brand new kittens that were just born & ready for adoption and petted some cats.

Then we went out to the field where we met the lucky pig who 'miraculously' appeared out of nowhere just one day before our first group arrived with materials!

DAY TWO AT THE BUILDING PROJECT WAS A BIG ACCOMPLISHMENT! We built the frames for the side walls and and completed parts for the roof that the next group can put everything together. We had a lot of fun sawing and drilling everything in the right sizes.

Thursday's team will head out there later this week!


Meet our session heroes & sponsors:

Haven Humane Society | Since 1952, Haven Humane Society has been caring for lost, homeless and abused animals in the Redding area. Our founders recognized that city and county resources could not support our mission of providing shelter and humane care for all animals who come through our doors. Instead, these concerned citizens created a charitable non-profit organization that is privately funded by people who believe all our four legged friends deserve love and respect.

The Home Depot Foundation | The Home Depot Foundation works to improve the homes and lives of U.S. veterans, train skilled tradespeople to fill the labor gap and support communities impacted by natural disasters. Since 2011, the Foundation has invested more than $400M in veteran causes and improved more than 50,000 veteran homes and facilities. The Foundation has pledged to invest half of a billion dollars in veteran causes by 2025 and $50 million in training the next generation of skilled tradespeople through the Path to Pro program.
