Pitt-Greensburg Habitat for Humanity Spring Break Trip
On Saturday, March 4, 2017, 25 Pitt-Greensburg students, alumni, and staff members will load up into three vans and drive to Tucker, Georgia for this year's alternative spring break trip. It will be the 13th consecutive year that Pitt-Greensburg students will travel south to help build homes with Habitat for Humanity.
Almost a quarter of the population in Tucker, Georgia falls below the poverty line, so we are looking forward to visiting a city that can use our help.
We will spend our week building simple, decent, affordable housing with Habitat for Humanity of DeKalb. We will spend 6-8 hours each day from Monday through Friday working on a home with a local partner family. We will be doing a great variety of tasks ranging from building walls and roofing to putting in drywall or siding on the home.
Our group of 25 volunteers will provide 800-1,000 hours of service while in Tucker.
How does your donation help?
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 1,300 mile round trip and transportation to and from the work site each day
- Program fees
- Work site supplies, such as gloves, etc.
Your donation will help us with these expenses and assure that we will have enough funds to have another successful Collegiate Challenge trip. Please consider donating at any level.
