Village Cares

Habitat For Humanity

Village Clubs Habitat For Humanity

The Village Health Club & Spas and Habitat for Humanity of Central Arizona teamed up in October in support of a local Tempe community.

The Village leadership team was split into separate groups. With all hands actively working, in just a few hours, we were able to paint an entire house, move 36 tons of decorative rock and plant trees for another home, and provide information and flyers to the other homes in the neighborhood in the event that they might need assistance as well.

This beautiful October day was a fulfilling day of service for almost 80 members of our leadership team.  We were able to honor our neighbors and focus as an entire group on a community that needed our help. We worked hard, had fun and felt great seeing the home owners’ gratitude when the job was done.
