GIVING BACK: ST. PHILIP'S COLLEGE WELCOMES ALL TO E-REGISTER-AND-VOLUNTEER TO BUILD A HOUSE FOR A FAMILY WITH HABITAT FOR HUMANITY NEXT MONTH
SAN ANTONIO (Feb. 9, 2018)---With help from local volunteers, some St. Philip's College construction technology students are teaming up with Habitat for Humanity to build a house for a family in town next month.
All are welcome to e-register-and-join St. Philip's College construction student club members as they continue to break new ground by taking on their second community service project on the Westside of San Antonio next month, the college announced today.
The students' first Westside construction project was a low-key operation known to a few as the Zupan Project, drawing its name for the street name of the rehabbed residence. For their second project, the students are members of a higher profile Habitat for Humanity of San Antonio construction team March 3. The project requires more labor than available students, and additional volunteers are welcome to register with Habitat for Humanity of San Antonio to support the project. The site is located within the Lenwood Heights subdivision of three- and four-bedroom homes on 26 acres next to Bethel United Methodist Church. Habitat for Humanity of San Antonio celebrated building its 1,000th home in 2017.
The college students have not been assigned a specific home to build, so they have yet to meet the actual homeowners, however, they are likely to meet as part of the project. The homeowners also contribute at least 300 hours toward building the home, organizers report.
To volunteer, email firstname.lastname@example.org or contact Habitat for Humanity of San Antonio Volunteer Coordinator Nina Guerrero at (210) 223-5203 ext. 161 or (210) 842-2980.
