Hearts and Hammers Defined

Hearts and Hammers together is synonymous with a day of fun helping your neighbors and improving your community.

Wet Hearts and Hammers volunteers after a long, muddy day--and still having a great time!  The pond in background didn't exist in the morning and was still empty until Fran brought the rain mid afternoon!


According to Wikipedia, The heart is a myogenic muscular organ found in all animals with a circulatory system.

Human Heart from University of Washington web page.

But to have a heart, as the tin man found out, is to be sincere or to act of kindness.  A hammer on the other hand, is any tool used to impact other objects.

Old hand made Hammer from Williamsburg colonial times.
I can't think of a better name for a community based social help network which matches 'volunteers that can' with 'families with needs who can't' than HEARTS and HAMMERS.
