Gulfport, Miss. (November 15, 2018) – Habitat for Humanity of the MS Gulf Coast is hosting 10 student volunteers the week of December 17, 2018 while the students are on their winter break. The students are participating in Habitat’s alternative break program called Collegiate Challenge.

 

“Each year we look forward to having the students from Central Michigan University return.  This is our fourth time hosting CMU students during their break and we greatly appreciate their efforts and traveling from Michigan to the Gulf Coast,” said Angela Singletary, Volunteer Specialist at Habitat MS Gulf Coast.  “This volunteer effort provides the students with an opportunity to help build affordable housing in the Gulf Coast area. The work they’ll do during their break will have a lasting impact in our community.”

 

The students will be working on a new home construction project at Sadler Drive in Gulfport.
