Habitat’s Philippines trip is a ‘go’

A team of 10 student members of the UW-Green Bay Collegiate Chapter of Habitat for Humanity is headed to the Philippines in August to build homes and hope in the aftermath of last fall’s typhoon. They have been actively fundraising to cover their trip and transportation costs. In these past 12 weeks, they have raised an astonishing $14,610 toward their contribution to Habitat for Humanity-Philippines, and an additional $14,000 toward their transportation costs. The online campaign is over now, but the team would like to extend a final reminder to anyone who would still like to contribute to simply make out a check to UWGB Habitat for Humanity-Philippines and send it Mike Stearney, SS 2000. Donations of any amount are welcome, and will go toward transportation costs.

And a thanks from the team…

The Habitat-Philippines team would like to thank all the members of the campus community whose generous support contributed to their success. Here is a message from them:

Dear UWGB Campus Community,
We are where we are in this fundraising campaign because you are who you are. Your compassion, your generosity, and your commitment to our cause will allow us to participate in this adventure of a lifetime. More importantly however, it will provide safe, durable, secure homes, as well as a day care center and community center, for 50 families in the Philippines. We may be doing the lifting and building on this trip, but please know that you are a part of our team. From the bottoms of hearts, we thank you.

Brianna Laack, Matt Klansky, Richard Wendricks, Jessica Martens, Courtney Maye, Sarah Busko, Jordan Fraser, Shelby Schraufnagel, Stephanie Diedrich, Logan Andres, and Mike Stearney
