When Veterans Administration Mental Health Recreational Therapist, Kristi Ruben, heard about Habitat’s first Veterans Build project, she had an idea. Since the distressed property Habitat purchased would be demolished to build a new home for a local veteran, she wondered if the planks from the old fence could be turned into birdhouses for the VA Expressive Arts Group to paint and decorate.
The Veterans we're eager to help a fellow Veteran and the resulting masterpieces can be seen below.
You can enter for a chance to win one of the birdhouses by purchasing raffle tickets. Proceeds will be split between Habitat's Veterans Build and to purchase art supplies for the Veterans Expressive Art Group.
Raffle drawing was held November 11. Congrats to all the winners!
