Hockey Sticks And Hammers

COLUMBIA FALLS -

The Glacier Nationals Junior hockey team trade their helmets for hard hats to help out Habitat for Humanity in Columbia Falls.

Eleven team members are working on a two-family townhouse on Mitchell Way.

This is the third year the team has worked with Habitat for Humanity, helping finish a home in Kalispell as well as another home in Columbia Falls.

They hope to complete the home around Christmas so the families can move in at the beginning of the new year.

"It'll definitely help out on the ice," said Paul Kinder, the team's captain, "Like I said, our balance up there on the scaffolding. It'll help out endurance, keep working the whole hours and stuff."

Since 1989, Habitat for Humanity has completed 40 homes in the Flathead Valley.
