Willmar, Minn., area volunteers find their own way to help the community
Every Monday through Thursday at exactly 9:30 a.m., a group of about 12 men, all retired, gather around for coffee and cookies. They laugh and joke like old friends and tell each other stories about their lives.
It's a scene that's not so uncommon. But after 15 minutes or so, these retired men finish their coffee, put their work gloves back on and head back to the construction site, where they continue building homes from the ground up.
