On a brisk fall morning in early November, Brad Durham and Randy Evert of the Atlanta Branch, in conjunction with Kauffman Tire, represented Eastern Cares at a Habitat home-build in downtown Atlanta. Brad’s girlfriend, Melanie, an employee of Kauffman Tire, joined with approximately 30 other fellow employees from Kauffmans corporate office for a good old-fashioned home raising. Melanies sixteen year old daughter, Madison, also joined in.

According to Randy, it was an amazing day! “At eight oclock in the morning, there was just a foundation. By three oclock that afternoon, all the walls were up and windows installed. Neither Brad nor I had been a part of anything like it before.”

Later in the day, they had the opportunity to meet the future homeowner and expressed how great it was to see the positive impact the community effort had on her and her family.
