21 members of the Chiefs Women's Organization were out in the community in association with Habitat for Humanity to work on two homes currently under construction Wednesday afternoon.
Dana Bass, the volunteer services director for Habitat for Humanity, explained that the relationship that's been created with the Chiefs helps in more ways than just home building.
"It brings awareness to our organization and it shows just how important the mission that we do is," she explained. "It shows that anybody can come out and help us and that the mission is worthwhile. Our families loves the completed process when it comes to the time for them to get their keys to their home, so it's a great process."
The Chiefs Women's Organization volunteered on Wednesday with Habitat for Humanity of Kansas City to work on two new homes in the area.
According to its website, Habitat for Humanity's vision is a world where everyone has a decent place to live. The organization calls volunteers into action by bringing people together to build homes, communities and hope.
"This group, particularly today, the Chiefs Women's Organization, they just jumped in and they got more accomplished today than we really though that they were going to," Bass added. "They worked hard from the time they got here, everybody's smiling—good attitudes, great spirit. It's been a really fun day."
