CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -
Several churches in Cedar Rapids ended Sunday services early so congregation members could spend time volunteering. Around 150 people spent time working at different sites. One crew worked on a home for Cedar Valley Habitat for Humanity. It's the last home the organization hopes to build this year and they want to get the exterior finished before winter arrives. "It's really good for a community and I think these churches really to see, I mean we're a faith based organization, and I think it's really good for them to see what we're doing," said Nate Kakazu, Volunteer Coordinator.
The day of service was meant to focus the church-goers on helping others instead of themselves. Other projects included cleaning a food pantry and picking up trash from a highway.
