Giving Back - RTA Spends the Day at Pikes Peak Habitat for Humanity
Another successful Pikes Peak Habitat for Humanity volunteer day is in the books! The RTA team started with cleaning up the site, then set the wood beams, installed joist hangers and set all the floor joists for the second floor at two homes. Did you know that it takes 3,000 hours to build a Habitat home? Learn more about this great organization here! http://pikespeakhabitat.org/volunteer/
