Local students work to build Habitat home

Posted:

It may be Spring Break for many in Michiana, but that doesn't mean students aren't finding ways to keep busy.

All week long students have been working together on this Habitat for Humanity build. It's part of the "Rock The House" event and from 9 to 4 different high school and college groups are working on the home that will go to a local family. Most of the students don't have construction work experience, but supervisors are on the site teaching as they go.

"We heard about other groups coming in from different schools and this house is all student built and it's all student volunteer groups so that's cool how it's all people around our age working together," says Joan Becker, a Marian High School sophomore. 

The project will continue every Saturday until the completion of the home which is scheduled for May.
