19 Dec 2018 Collegiate Challenge: Help Wanted!
Habitat for Humanity’s Collegiate Challenge is a year-round alternative break program. Groups of five or more participants, 18 years of age and older, can visit one of Habitat’s local affiliates throughout the United States. Groups spend one week working with the local affiliate, community and partner families to help eliminate poverty housing in the area. We will be hosting two groups; one returning from Neumann University on February 25th to March 2nd and the other from University of Virginia on March 18th to 23rd.
And, here’s where we can use your help. We are in need of meals for the upcoming groups. Each group will have 10 to 12 members. We are pleased to accept any in-kind donation you, your business, faith organization or community group are able to provide, big or small.
What is so unique about this volunteer effort is the fact that these young people are giving up their school break for community service. Instead of a more traditional trip to Cancun or Aruba, they will be in Beaufort building homes in partnership with local families in need of decent housing. The students will not only experience a first-hand taste of the LowCountry culture, but will also leave with a deeper understanding of the impact their work will have in revitalizing Beaufort’s core and upcoming neighborhoods.
Our success depends upon the support and generosity of people like you, and we would be extremely grateful for your assistance. If you should require additional information, please contact Lee McSavaney on 843-522-3500, or at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you in advance for your contribution and support!
