Habitat Highlights

October 18, 2013
Habitat volunteers have spruced up a local horse rescue, won national recognition in a video contest and made front page news for their efforts to build a ReStore in New Jersey.

Alternative Fall Break

Over fall break, students traveled to Vineland, N.J., to renovate the site of Habitat for Humanity’s first ReStore in Cumberland County. The store will sell donated furniture and home improvement items to raise funds for financing more Habitat home building.

You can read about the experience in The Daily Journal.


Champions of YouTube

WC Habitat landed first place in Habitat for Humanity International’s 2013 Youth Leadership Conference Film Fest, an accomplishment that will be recognized at the national conference in Alexandria, VA.


Helping Horses

Earlier in the fall semester, more than 150 volunteers organized by Washington College’s Habitat for Humanity refurbished fence lines and barns for rescued horses at SummerWinds Stables. You can read more about this experience here.



No Stranger to Winning

Last year, WC’s Habitat for Humanity triumphed over larger schools such as Penn State and Louisiana State to win the “Build a Future” contest that Barnes & Noble sponsored for all campuses with B&N bookstores. For the full story, click here.
