Habitat for Humanity at VSU is a non-profit organization that provides safe and affordable housing throughout the community. The campus organization partners with the local chapter in the community.
They also raise money to donate back to the local chapter. Last year they raised $2,000. This year, Habitat for Humanity plans on raising money to give back to the local chapter by the end of spring semester.
“My plan for this year is to, of course, raise more money, but also provide members with an organization to do community service and have a good time,” Caitlyn Smith, president of Habitat for Humanity, said.
To become a member of Habitat for Humanity you must have a 2.0 GPA . You must also complete requirements which include two community service events, two fundraisers, two meetings and one membership bonding event. Dues for this organization are $20.
“As the new event coordinator, I kind of just want to boost the engagement of the social life on campus and bring everybody together,” Evan Covington said.
“I feel like this semester will go really well,” Smith said. “It’s no doubt in my mind that we won’t reach our goal and have fun this year.”
Habitat for Humanity’s next meeting will be Sept. 12 at 7 p.m.
