On February 28, nursing students from Platt College in Aurora, CO, along with faculty member, Seth Thomas, volunteered at Habitat for Humanity, a national nonprofit organization that brings people together to build homes and communities for families with limited incomes. Students met on a cold, windy Friday morning at a new housing site off Chambers Road in Aurora, hoping to provide the organization with help in their mission. After providing safety equipment and a brief lecture on overall safety, staff at Habitat for Humanity assigned Platt nursing students various jobs for the day , which included everything from sweeping and mopping to nailing siding on the façade of several houses. Students and faculty worked together and side-by-side with members volunteering from the local community. Despite the inclement weather, students and faculty had a great time getting to know one another and learning about new home construction. Platt College students expressed that they were proud to be part of a team that helped a deserving family, and they hoped that they could return at a later date to work more with the charity.
