THE STORY:

Habitat for Humanity is a non-profit organization dedicated to eliminating homelessness by building simple, decent and affordable housing around the world. The University of Connecticut's Habitat for Humanity Chapter is going on an Alternative Spring Break Trip to Taos, NM from March 12th to 18th, 2016! There are 15 members traveling down to New Mexico. Here, we will work with the Taos Habitat for Humanity in the small town of Taos. They are in desperate need of our help. "More than 20% of the population lives below the poverty line and the median personal income is $26,000. In contrast, the average home price is $340,000 and, according to the State Housing Authority, 90% of the people who live and work in Taos cannot afford a home of their own." Their goal, and ours, is to eliminate poverty housing and homelessness, specifically in Taos. But, in order to do this we need your help! To get to Taos, NM, our group of 15 will be flying out of JFK Airport in NYC and flying into ABQ airport in NM. Airfare costs, food, gas and ground transportation can be expensive, so we are trying to raise funds to make it easier to go down to New Mexico. Any donation you would be willing to contribute would mean so much to our group. Everyone's personal goal is to raise $200 to help reduce the cost of our trip before we head out west this Spring!
