Panther Habitat for Humanity Spring Break

This spring break, Panther Habitat for Humanity will be traveling to Wilmington, North Carolina for our annual Collegiate Challenge outreach trip. During our week, we will be working directly with Habitat affiliates to build affordable, reliable housing in the local area. We will be spending five to six hours on work sites each day, framing walls, installing windows and doors, shingling roofs—whatever help the site managers need, we will provide! 

We are fundraising in order to help pay for transportation costs, housing, and individual costs to the local affiliate. Our trip would not be possible without all of the help from our donors. Thank you in advance for your contribution!



Contributions received for this project shall be used in accordance with the purpose described herein, the terms in the FAQs and applicable law. For questions that cannot be answered in the FAQs, please call 412-648-4658 or email

Nails are vital for the structural integrity of the house. They attach pieces of lumber to form walls and hold the trusses together to make the roof. Every nail is important and without nails, the house would fall apart.



Tools such as hammers, tape measures, pencils, pry bars, chalk lines, and knives are essential for building a Habitat Home. Tool belts help to keep all of these tools together with each of the builders so they can make progress on the construction without having to stop and locate a tool.


Circular Saw

The circular saw is an important tool on the build site. Particle board and lumber needs to be cut to the correct size so all the components of the house fit together correctly without any gaps or overhangs.


Safety Equipment

The safety of the builders is one of the most important factors on the build site. Safety equipment such as goggles, gloves, and hard hats are imperative in keeping the volunteers safe.



Habitat relies heavily on volunteers on not only building the actual house, but also for food and drink donations, and supply donation. This donation pays for the cost of a volunteer through a Collegiate Challenge Trip.



Lumber is the skeleton that holds the house together. Without a sturdy frame, the walls and roof would collapse upon their own weight. Lumber is essential for maintaining structural integrity of the house.


Doors and Windows

A house needs doors and windows to be livable. The home owner needs to be able to enter and leave the building and enjoy sunlight while inside. These amenities are essential for every house we build.



A roof is important to keep out the rain and snow and provide shade from the sun. Every house needs a roof made of trusses, particle board, tar paper, and of course shingles.
