Mount Habitat for Humanity club needs help to help others

Newburgh, NY -

Habitat for Humanity

Students in the Mount Saint Mary College Habitat for Humanity club worked on a Benkard Avenue site last spring. In the past 10 years, Mount students have served on 16 Habitat projects in the City of Newburgh, NY, plus at sites in other areas of need.

Instead of basking on the beach during spring break, 13 students from Mount Saint Mary College’s Habitat for Humanity club will travel to Huntsville, AL, to flex their muscles building a home for a family in need.

But they need help to make their Collegiate Challenge project a success.

Donations can be made payable to Mount Saint Mary College. Please put Habitat for Humanity in the memo line and mail checks to Debra Waller-Frederick, Director of Residence Life, Mount Saint Mary College, 330 Powell Avenue, Newburgh, NY 12550.

Mount Saint Mary College, ranked a Top-Tier Regional University (North) by U.S. News & World Report, is known for service and more than half of its students volunteer through service clubs or in the field as a requirement of coursework.

Students, preparing for careers in education, health professions, business, psychology, human services, and liberal arts, also provide assistance to Big Brothers Big Sisters, and at schools, hospitals, and clinics in the community. For these and other efforts, Mount Saint Mary College was named to the federal President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll.
