Habitat for Humanity

Image of Habitat for Humanity holing their signHabitat for Humanity is a service organization whose mission is: “Seeking to put God’s love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities, and hope.” As a club, we go on local builds in our Dutchess County community. Here we volunteer and assist in building homes for families in various stages. Some examples of the things we have done are sodding, painting, gardening, etc. We also volunteer in our local Habitat for Humanity Re-store, a thrift store at which people can purchase used furniture and other home items. Every year we go on a Collegiate Challenge trip over spring break, where we volunteer with an affiliate in the United States and help build homes. Overall, this is a rewarding and fun club!

Meeting Times/Locations

We normally meet either the first Tuesday or Thursday of every month. All meetings and locations will be sent via email and posted on our social media.
