Western Kentucky University’s Habitat for Humanity campus chapter will be sending three volunteer groups to Arkansas, South Carolina and eastern Kentucky for spring break trips next week.
Mary Redding, a campus minister from Howardstown, will travel with a group to Benton, Ark.
On the trips the students will pick up wherever the affiliates to need assistance. This could be anything from putting down flooring to standing walls to putting on roofing or siding and anything in-between. Some of the affiliates are concentrating on new building and some affiliates will be focusing on rehabilitating homes. The affiliate in Morehead is working on rebuilding homes and hope after the tornadoes that ripped through that potion of the state last year.
Collegiate Challenge is an alternative break trip program run through Habitat for Humanity’s Youth Programs and volunteer mobilization department. The program offers students an opportunity to volunteer with Habitat for Humanity affiliates from across the country during breaks in their academic year.
