Habitat for Humanity of Broward to Host 200 Students
During ‘Collegiate Challenge’ Program in March
FORT LAUDERDALE (February 11, 2016) – Students representing nine colleges will be participating in Habitat for Humanity of Broward’s “Collegiate Challenge” program during the first three weeks of March.
The students, with assistance from Habitat’s volunteer leaders and a group known as “Care a Vanners” (made up of retirees who travel around the country in RV’s doing Habitat projects), will be working on four new home builds in Oakland Park.
During their work days, the workers will be provided lunch by local sponsors such as Florida Community Bank, Allied Kitchen & Bath, The Cheesecake Factory, JM Family Enterprises, Inc., Oztheterrier.com, Cheeseboy Construction, Linda D. Jones – Supreme Lending, Andy & Laura McRell, BBI, Dr. Eloise McCoy-Cain and Craven Consulting Inc. – Civil Engineers.
“We certainly applaud these students for giving up their personal time during spring break to participate in this terrific program,” said Perry Ecton, Executive Director of Habitat for Humanity of Broward. “They can all take heart in the fact they will be helping a needy family get into a new home. They will truly be making a difference in our society.”
Schools scheduled to participate include Mount Carmel College of Nursing, University of Mary Washington, York College of Pennsylvania, Clark University, University of Pittsburgh – Johnstown, Connecticut College, Fitchburg State, the College of Brockport and Purdue University – Phi Sigma Rho.
Since 1989, Habitat for Humanity International’s “Collegiate Challenge” program has invited students to spend one week working with Habitat affiliates to build homes and improve communities. Nearly 240,000 students have volunteered during their spring break to help build or rehabilitate homes, while donating over $25 million to Habitat affiliates.
