UMKC's Women's Golf Helps Habitat for Humanity

The UMKC women's golf team recently took part in a Habitat for Humanity project where they helped reside a 25-year-old Kansas City house.

During their time at the house, the team helped remove loose siding from the house and replace it with new siding.  On site, the girls would place the new siding on the house, making sure that there were no air pockets or space between the individual sides, while also hanging new J-channel around the siding, near the gutters and cutting new pieces of vinyl that fit the area needing replaced.

At the project, the girls had to utilize their teammates in order to hang pieces of the siding and J-channel once they were above the normal reaching height and create an assembly line using three large ladders as they moved across the house to keep the hanging pace.
