San Diego Habitat For Humanit Starts Charging Volunteers

Note: This is a summary to a story from an outside news organization.  To read the full article, please follow the links in this post.

Channel 10 News San Diego has posted a story on its website about how volunteer groups of five or more people are being charged $100 per person to do work for Habitat for Humanity.  The article cites many frustrated volunteers who have vowed never to volunteer for the group again because of the new policy.  The new rule was put into place out of a need to find new ways to get funding.  And although volunteers are unhappy with it, Habitat says it has seen a surge in corporate donations since instituting it.
