Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Pitt-Greensburg chapter of Habitat for Humanity was unfortunately not able to travel last year to help an affiliate in need. This upcoming year, however, 18 Pitt-Greensburg students, alumni, and staff members will load up into two vans and drive to Monroe, North Carolina for this year’s alternative spring break trip on Saturday, March 5th 2022. It will be the 17th year that Pitt-Greensburg students will travel south to help build homes with Habitat for Humanity.
We will be working with the Union-Anson County Habitat for Humanity affiliate. This affiliate builds about 8-12 homes per year for local partner families.
We will spend our week building simple, decent, affordable housing with this local affiliate. Sunday, we will spend the day seeing sights in and around Monroe. Monday through Friday, we will spend 6-8 hours per day working on a home with a local partner family. We will be doing a variety of tasks throughout the week, including traveling to various work sites.
Our group of 18 volunteers will provide 700-800 hours of service while in North Carolina.

Siding on the outside of the home protects the home from the elements and puts a finishing touch on the home. It serves dual purposes and assures that a home will be protected for years to come.
