The Blanco County Chapter of Habitat for Humanity spent most of the Saturdays in February and March working on an A Brush With Kindness project.
This type of project requires that the recipient family or individual qualifies economically and agrees to partner with Habitat to do the work.
The Habitat A Brush With Kindness project is a $5000 makeover of the exterior of an existing home that is owned and insured by the recipient.
The project, as its name implies, is designed to include painting, porch repairs, re-roofing, installing handicap ramps, pruning shrubbery and other tasks that are accomplished only on the exterior.
This the second ABWK project that the Blanco County team of workers has worked on since its organization in 2004. The other ABWK project was completed in Blanco in the fall of 2008.
It is amazing to see the depth of commitment Habitat volunteers bring to the work site.
Volunteers for the most recent project came from Johnson City and Blanco to work on this current project. Church members who participated in this project came from Blanco Methodist Church, St. Michael’s Episcopal Church of Blanco, Good Shepherd Catholic of Johnson City, Johnson City Methodist, and New Hope Lutheran of Blanco. These dedicated workers come to the site with a sense of purpose.
They understand that they are called to be the hands and feet of Christ in the world.

We always need more workers in all categories including social workers to help with family selection, those with construction skills, painters, and those with hospitality skills to provide coffee, water, breakfast snacks, and lunch for the crew.
