On Monday, the Kimberley Development team lead a Habitat for Humanity Blitz Build (#birdlandblitz) in Des Moines. It was a hot one, nearing 100 degrees. There were more than 100 volunteers from AmeriCorps dedicating their time as well.
During the Blitz Build, 10 new homes will be dedicated to 10 deserving families this Saturday. When we got onsite at 7:30am, next to none of the exteriors were painted and the interiors were finished with drywall, ready for paint. We spent the day tackling the exterior painting, siding the porch, painting the interior, and setting cabinets. The day was full of fun, sweat, and hard work! We met so many interesting people from all over the country who all joined in to make this project come together and tackle all of this in a days’ work.

Our experience with Kimberley was very professional and personal at the same time. Everyone we dealt with through the whole process was very helpful. Dave, our superintendent, was great at keeping us informed during construction of our home. We really appreciated everyone involved–it made the process easy!Judy Klever | Ankeny
