This past weekend part of the CMS Football team took a break from their spring training and school work and traveled to Corona, CA to volunteer for Habitat Humanity of Riverside's "Helping Hands: Mobile Home Rehabilitation Program." The team worked on painting the exterior of a home belonging to a low-income homeowner.
The Habitat for Humanity "Helping Hands" program is designed to help low and fixed income households make improvements to the exterior of the house that they would not otherwise be able to. By making improvements to the resident's houses this program helps prevent the residents from being cited or evicted for violating the strict quality and safety standards within mobile home communities. "It was definitely a privilege as well as a rewarding experience to be able to help out and donate our time to a family that really needed it. Thank you to Habitat for Humanity for allowing my teammates and I to contribute and be a part of such a great cause," stated Austin Crist (CMC '16)
