Robinson Spends Spring Break Volunteering With Habitat For Humanity

Stephanie Robinson, of McConnellsburg traveled to Pittsboro, N.C., to participate in Habitat for Humanity International’s Collegiate Challenge: Spring Break 2011 program from March 13 through March 19. As part of Lycoming College’s Habitat for Humanity, Robinson joined the Chath-am County affiliate in an effort to build decent, affordable homes for families in need. Robinson is a junior business major at Lycoming College.

This is Lycoming College’s 21st year of participation in the Collegiate Challenge year-round program, coordinated through the Campus Chapters and Youth Programs department at Habitat for Humanity International in Americus, Ga. Lycoming students have traveled all over the continental United States to participate in this alternative break program, including sites in Arizona, California, Florida, New Mexico, North Carolina, South Carolina and Texas.

Habitat for Humanity International is an ecumenical Christian ministry dedicated to eliminating poverty housing. Founded by Millard Fuller, along with his wife, Linda, Habitat for Humanity International and its affiliates in more than 2,000 communities in 100 countries have built and sold more than 175,000 homes to partner families with no-profit, zero-interest mortgages. By the end of this year, Habitat will be sheltering 1 million people.
