Habitat at UVA
Habitat at UVa is a student-led organization at the University of Virginia that seeks to build, fundraise, advocate, and educate about the need for affordable housing. It is made up of both the Habitat Campus Chapter and Inter-Greek Habitat. They work closely with the Greater Charlottesville affiliate to better the local community and work with Habitat for Humanity International to contribute to the improvement of sub-standard housing worldwide.
Members of Habitat at UVa also participate in Act, Speak, Build Week in April and Collegiate Challenge for their annual Spring Break Trip. This year Habitat UVa is travelling to Winston-Salem, North Carolina where they will be building with the local Habitat affiliate.
Habitat at UVA raised over $10,000 during the 2012-2013 school year for a house sponsorship and have set their sights to raise more this year. To learn how you can help them achieve this goal visit their Facebook page or contact the chapter President, Caroline Dunne.
