Volunteer Spotlight: Megan in Coastal Bend
You don’t just rebuild homes, you help give homeowners a positive future.
I originally arrived in Coastal Bend in early summer to learn more about the rebuild process for my degree in International Disaster Management. I had no construction knowledge whatsoever and felt quite apprehensive. However, I had such an incredible time on project that I decided to return for another month. When you volunteer you don’t just become part of the community, you become part of the All Hands and Hearts family. You don’t just learn construction skills, you learn skills that you’ll be able to utilise for the rest of your life. You don’t just rebuild homes, you help give homeowners a positive future. The work All Hands and Hearts does in Coastal Bend is incredible. A year on from Harvey many Texans feel like they’ll be forgotten, but All Hands and Hearts won’t let that happen. I’ve been able to see first hand how the work we do here in Coastal Bend changes the lives of so many families for the better – it’s such a magical thing.
