Do Good Divas Team With Habitat For Humanity

The Do Good Divas are giving back.

The group of ladies traded in their handbags for hand tools chipping in at Habitat for Humanity's latest build in Leamington.  

Club president Gale Simko-Hatfield  says the divas helped with painting and cleaning, among other things. 

She says this is the first time they've done something like this.

"It was a great experience," says Simko-Hatfield.  "It's a busy time for us to take the day off, but we weren't slouching. We were very busy helping Habitat and happy to do it. We also made a donation of $1,000."

She adds the project is in the finishing touches stage as the home is supposed to be ready for a family in need by August 25.

There was a lot of painting that needed to be done at this point," says Simko-Hatfield.  "A lot of paint getting on the walls, on all the doors throughout the whole house, in our hair, on our feet, on our hands. A lot of paint going everywhere including where it should be going." 

This is Habitat for Humanity's 64th build in Windsor-Essex.

Work on a new ReStore is underway as well on Edinborough St behind Teppermans.

It's scheduled to open in the spring of 2019 and will be one of the largest ReStores in Canada.
