FLOC members got their hands dirty in October by painting and hammering nails into new “Habitat homes” in San Juan Capistrano. Sharon Ellis, Executive Director of Habitat for Humanity of Orange County, inspired the FLOC filled audience at Tannin’s by sharing several moving stories involving injured US soldiers and needy families that have been placed in Habitat homes. Many FLOCers took work off mid-week to participate in the two day home build.
“Transformation doesn’t happen by itself, it doesn’t happen overnight, it doesn’t happen with one person, it is all of us as a community coming together and saying, I’m going to give up a Saturday to build or use my talents to transform lives.” Sharon Ellis, Executive Director of Habitat for Humanity of Orange County
