Almost 20 volunteers showed up early Saturday morning from the ranks of DELL - representing the DELL Pride group and their colleagues and friends, much gratitude is due these folks for not only pushing through one HOT day, but also making a generous $10,000 donation to the Pride Build effort! Thank you DELL for your leadership, and for giving back! Special thanks to Jacque Young for pulling together the volunteers (and for leading us in some a capella James Brown and Janet Jackson along the way...)

We also had some regulars show up - this Pride Build can be addictive (it is for this blogger), and we thank everyone for giving up a Saturday to sweat it out in the sun. By the end of today's build, the majority of the OSB made it up on the roof, as did the majority of the house wrap (along with a good number of windows!). We're marching along nicely. See the pictures below.

We have 8 more Saturdays to build, and many more volunteer slots to fill, so please email me at if you are interested in helping out! The Habitat staff informed me that we still have $12,000 to raise to finish the house. If each of us put in a donation that is significant to us, we could easily achieve our goal.
