Habitat for Humanity has a vision where everyone has a decent place to live and call home. Their mission is to bring people together to build homes, communities and hope.
On Friday, April 21st St. Petersburg College Downtown and Midtown campus joined together to volunteer with Habitat for Humanity to help revitalize a home for a deserving family.
There was a total of 10 SPC students and staff out of the 16 total volunteers that showed up and were put to work. Habitat homebuyers help build their own homes alongside volunteers and pay an affordable mortgage. We were tasked with restoring the home by painting inside the house , changing doors in each room, yard work in the front and backyard, pressure washing the driveway, cleaning the outside of the home, and also changing out windows.
Habitat for Humanity actively helps the community by providing affordable housing for families and SPC is proud to join Habitat, the local community, and the new homeowners in helping to make this a wonderful home. Volunteers completed a step in the process that will still be ongoing for this house to be completed and made a huge impact in the homeowners’ life and future home.
