Curveball has Habitat students raising additional funds for service trip
The UW-Green Bay student chapter of Habitat for Humanity is going to Miami, Florida to build homes for people in the still-recovering Hurricane Andrew devastation area. The weeklong trip departs Saturday (Jan. 9). The 40 students will be camping for the time they are in Miami to build homes. Typically the local affiliate supplies food for the students while they are volunteering, but the Miami affiliate is unable to do so. UW-Green Bay students did much fundraising for this service trip to be able to afford the transportation and lodging fees, but the additional food expense came as a late surprise. Trip organizers say even bare-bones meals will total nearly $1,000 for the 40-person contingent, with three dinners ($135 each) four lunches ($65 each) and five breakfasts ($45 each). They’re asking people to help defray the cost and support the campus chapter by donating a lump sum or sponsoring a meal or two. Cash or checks payable to UWGB Habitat for Humanity can be dropped off at the Admissions Office with the group’s adviser, Jen Jones. Any questions?
