The Effingham County High School chapter of the National Honor Society has had the privilege to serve its community by volunteering for Habitat for Humanity over the last couple of months.

On Oct. 25, the students met at the Habitat for Humanity ReStore center in Rincon where they were directed to a service site in Springfield. At this site, Habitat for Humanity was putting the final touches on a home built for a military veteran. Students served by painting, landscaping, and clearing the debris around the home site.

On Nov. 15, the students helped to build a storage shed for a future Habitat house that will be built in Governor’s Ridge subdivision.

Led by Jennifer Hayes, teacher presiding over the ECHS National Honor Society, the group was able to help the organization prepare for the dedication of the house that is coming up soon. Effingham County High School was honorably represented by the National Honor Society that is comprised of students with outstanding character, service, scholastic, and leadership qualities.

Habitat for Humanity also welcomed the students with gratitude and a willingness to help them find opportunities of service within their community.
