Windsor volunteers are at it again, braving the scorching heat last week to complete two home projects for Habitat for Humanity on the hottest days of the summer so far, Thursday, July 18 and Friday, July 19.

Painting Habitat for Humanity

20 Windsor employees teamed up to complete the two projects located in the River Bend neighborhood of northern Des Moines, which is currently undergoing major renovation. The first project consisted of painting a very old stucco home while the second project focused on bringing a 1912 home up to current housing codes, which involved painting and roofing a storage shed as well as constructing an exterior stair rail.
