United in spirit

Volunteers at the 30th Jimmy & Rosalynn Carter Work Project are a diverse bunch. Some are veterans who were there for the first project with the Carters in 1984; others are taking up power tools for the first time. Some are working in their hometowns, while others have traveled halfway around the globe. But they all have something in common: the spirit to see the work through.

Getting it right
