MIDDLETON, Wis. - Friday proved to be perfect weather for employees of a Middleton business to get out of the office and volunteer.
Fish and Associates staffers traded in their computers and cubicles for a day in the sun with saws and hammers, helping build a Habitat for a Humanity home. Habitat Development Director Amy Good expressed her gratitude to the business for their helping hands.
"Habitat's very fortunate that the community comes together to support us, and we have almost 4,000 volunteers on site this year alone to help us built at least 15 homes for people that need them," Good said.
The house, located in Fitchburg, is slated to be done by this summer. The future owner was also out at the site, pitching in on building the home's walls.
Habitat families work 325-375 hours to help build their future houses.
