Last week, students from the University of Virginia were with us every day as part of our Augusta/CSRA Habitat for Humanity Collegiate Challenge 2017. As you can see, a lot of progress was made on House 75 and the floor and walls were completed. Thank you to the students and local volunteers who made this happen. We couldn’t do it without you. We would also like to thank the following restaurants for donating lunches: Papa John’s, Chick-fil-A, Mot’s Barbeque, Blimpie, and Baldino’s.
For many years, Habitat has provided alternative school break volunteer opportunities to college students.
This is a unique one-week volunteer program. Collegiate Challenge offers an education all its own. Students learn practical building skills while helping others They learn about poor living conditions and how decent, affordable housing builds strength, stability and self-reliance for families.
