I spent my spring break in Columbus Georgia building a house for Habitat for Humanity. There were ten schools there building ten houses in a week. It was a fun experience. The contractors that where assigned to the houses were also volunteers and usually they were really helpful. Our contractors were not so helpful though and they didn't seem to care about the build. They normally build big expensive houses and were not too concerned with the quality of the house we were building for a low income family. It made some of us mad that they would let the house be built in an unprofessional manner. I thought it was interesting that these people who volunteered their time where not willing to actually help. They seemed like they just wanted to be there and stand around for tax reasons or something.
