Pitt-Greensburg Habitat for Humanity Spring Trip
On Friday, March 8, 2019, 25 Pitt-Greensburg students, alumni, and staff members will load up into three vans and drive to Avery County, North Carolina for this year’s alternative spring break trip. It will be the 15th consecutive year that Pitt-Greensburg students will travel south to help build homes with Habitat for Humanity.
The poverty rate in Avery County, NC is about 17% which is greater than the national average (14%), so we are looking forward to visiting a city that could use our help.
We will spend our week building simple, decent, affordable housing with Habitat for Humanity of Avery County. Monday through Friday we will spend 6-8 hours working on a home with a local partner family. We will be doing a variety of tasks throughout the week.
Our group of 25 volunteers will provide 800-1,000 hours of service while in Avery County.
Where will your donation go?
There are many expenses that our group will incur on the trip. They include:
- Daily meals (breakfast, lunch, dinner) for 25 people x 8 days
- Van rentals and gas for the 802-mile round trip and transportation to and from the work site each day
- Program fees
- Work site supplies, such as gloves, etc.
