Clay County Habitat for Humanity welcomed students from the University of Kentucky and Colgate University for Collegiate Challenge. During the week of their Spring Break, these twenty students volunteered on various projects.
For more than 25 years, Habitat has provided alternative school break volunteer opportunities to college students. Since this program began in the late ’80s, more than 250,000 have committed to building safe, affordable homes across the United States through Collegiate Challenge. The college students volunteered at the Clay County Habitat ReStore and at a property in Middleburg. They learned about the need for affordable housing in Clay County and in the state of Florida.
