For example, you might clean up the construction site or help in another way. Though, if you can help build the house, it will be a fantastic feeling. Every time the two of you go by the home that you helped build, you will always remember your date. The best dates are always those that benefit the most, and few dates can benefit your community like donating your time and talents to Habitat for Humanity.
