On Monday, Jan. 19, Martin Luther King Day, 11 volunteers from Western Carolina University, joined the Habitat for Humanity force to help apply vinyl siding to a house being restored by Habitat.

One member from the Center for Service Learning at WCU and the women from Alpha Kappa Alpha sorority spent the day learning how to properly use tools and specific techniques for installing vinyl siding on a structure.

A few had never used a hammer before, so the Habitat crew said that is was fun to educate them as to which end to hammer with.
