Pledge 5, Habitat For Humanity and Volunteer Day
Gainesville, Florida -- A local organization teamed up with Alachua County Habitat for Humanity to put the finishing touches on a home in Northeast Gainesville.
Members with Pledge 5 foundation assisted in painting, sweeping and installing new appliances to the home for a mother and her three children.
Habitat for Humanity is just one of the few non-profit organizations that Pledge 5 volunteers with.
Homeowners apply for these habitat homes by filling out an application and a committee makes the decision on who they should help.
Pledge 5 says they're dedicated to increasing the number of community volunteers by encouraging people of all kinds to pitch in.
Selected homeowners must complete 400 hours of community service, 200 on their house and 200 on the next house that gets chosen.
The family plans to move in July 22.
