A group of young people is giving back right now in Charlotte County. They are part of Delta 2 AmeriCorps National Civilian Community Core. The seven-member team arrived at the beginning of February. Now they're wrapping up their five-week partnership with Habitat for Humanity. They've worked on three different homes in Charlotte County but spent most of their time building a home for a Navy veteran in Port Charlotte. They started with just a concrete slab but found many hands do light work. They come from all over the country and partner with several nonprofits. They even helped out with post-Hurricane Irma relief. The 10-month-long program is for anyone ages 18 to 24.
