Habitat volunteers return for 19th year

March 13, 2014

Habitat for Humanity welcomed Rockford University students for its first week of the Collegiate Challenge program for 2014.

The Collegiate Challenge is a program offered by Habitat for Humanity where out-of-state volunteers come to Starkville to help build homes for chosen Starkville residents. Rockford University, located in Rockford, Ill., has sent a group of volunteers for the past 19 years. This year, they brought 29 volunteers. The volunteers financed their own trip and raised funds throughout the year to each bring $125 with them to buy building materials. The group is staying at Camp Seminole, owned by Boy Scouts of America, and work on building the house Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
