Carver Students Volunteer for Habitat for Humanity Project

Carpentry students from Carver Vocational-Technical High School put down their pencils and picked up shovels in collaboration with associates from Capital One Bank and students from other local schools to participate in a Habitat for Humanity project last May in Baltimore City.  The students spent six hours on a beautiful Spring day rebuilding and beautifying an alleyway that had been considered an eyesore to local residents.  A new garden area with a new fence and storage area was created to benefit the appreciative residents of the Canton neighborhood.  One of Carver's carpentry teachers, Gregory McDevitt, served as foreman of the project, guiding the volunteers and keeping all involved organized and productive.  Mr. McDevitt even capitalized on an opportunity to serve even more residents by splitting the team into two groups so that the second group could build a dozen new kitchen cabinets for residents in need.  The day was an overall success and a remarkable example of teamwork and service to the community.
