They say it takes doing something seven times to make it a habit. I’ve been a part of Lunch With a Purpose for about two years now and well over that seven times mark. I like that Thursday lunch usually means planning to spend an hour with great people doing something to help a local Lansing community effort. Today’s adventure in volunteering took us to Habitat for Humanity Restore. I had been aware of this store for many years but had never taken the time to actually find it or go. It is located at 1941 Benjamin Dr. in Lansing’s north side. The Restore sells used or not needed building supplies at the large warehouse squarely positioned on a quiet street end. The entire operation is run by volunteers. Our job, as volunteers, today was to help organize materials for the winter. We had a group of about 15 stationed throughout the property cleaning, sorting and unloading. I enjoy this work. It feels good knowing that we are helping people, who are helping people.
