I am part of the University of Connecticut’s Habitat for Humanity Chapter. Habitat for Humanity is a non-profit organization dedicated to eliminating homelessness by building simple, decent, and affordable housing around the world.
During spring break fifteen Habitat members will be going down to Alabama where we will work with the Greater Birmingham Habitat for Humanity affiliate. They are among the top ten affiliates in the US and have helped over 100 families annually. Their goal, and ours, is to provide affordable housing to eliminate poverty and homelessness. But, in order to do this we need your help!
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 Birmingham. Any donation you would be willing to contribute would mean so much to us.
