RICKENBACKER AIR NATIONAL GUARD BASE, Ohio --
Airmen with the 121st Air Refueling Wing Enlisted Field Advisory Council participated in a community outreach program with Habitat for Humanity April 23, 2016 in Columbus, Ohio.
EFAC Airmen helped to build a new walkway railing, repaint window sills and replace old windows for a local family in need.
"Part of the American Dream is owning a home," said Senior Airman Michael Lunn, with the 121st Logistics Readiness Squadron. "When someone is in need of help or repair for their home you're not just restoring their home, you're restoring their dream and I'm proud to represent the 121st in doing this."
Habitat for Humanity builds and renovates homes all over the world to provide decent affordable housing to those in need.
"Being able to help out and be a part of an organization that is known for its contributions to the community is a very rewarding feeling," said Senior Airman Brayden Pratt, with the 121st LRS. "I like having the opportunity to serve and help those that are in need. Knowing that the little things EFAC does has a major impact on the people in the community is gratifying. For example, building a hand rail seems minor, but it will provide safety and security for the resident."
