The AmeriCorps National Civilian Community Corps (NCCC) volunteer team was at St. Theresa Place on Wednesday, helping build future Habitat homes for the community.

The AmeriCorps NCCC team is working on its goal of 10 weeks of service in the community building Habitat homes, and Wednesday's project at St Theresa Place took place during week three.

“We are here to get things done! This is my second term serving in AmeriCorps NCCC. My projects have ranged from helping with summer feeding programs for kids to building a trail," Alexis Mehringer, AmeriCorps NCCC Field Team Leader said. "I have loved traveling, meeting new people, and helping different communities.”

Habitat for Humanity of Evansville, the organization behind the St. Theresa Place project, was happy to have the team's help, especially since the COVID-19 pandemic has caused a shortage of volunteers.

Thanks to the AmeriCorps NCCC team, the 14-home Habitat subdivision that is St. Theresa Place is now one step closer to completion.

According to the AmeriCorps website, AmeriCorps NCCC is a residential program designed for young adults who want to travel the country and serve full-time on a tight-knit team.

It was an absolutely gorgeous afternoon throughout the Tri-State, but despite our seemingly endless supply of sunshine today, temperatures remained more than 10° cooler than the norm for this time of the year. Fortunately, today's peak temperature of 65° represents our coolest anticipated afternoon high temperature through the remainder of our extended forecast. While it is indeed encouraging that temperatures will gradually rise through the rest of the work week into the weekend ahead, we'll still have to deal with temperatures back down into the upper 30s and low 40s early Thursday morning.
