The fundraising committee is really pumped for all of the opportunities this semester. In collaboration with other student groups on campus we will work hard to further Habitat for Humanity’s mission to bring people together to build homes, communities and hope. Last semester, committee members took ownership over their own initiatives and led several successful events, including a St. Patty’s Day sale and a grilled cheese fundraiser. This fall, the committee is really excited about making meaningful connections with other student groups to expand Habitat for Humanity’s reach and raise even more funds! Co-chair Shayna Capers says, “This will be my third semester as fundraising co-chair. So I am excited to take advantage of my experience and put the committee’s bank of ideas in full effect!”
It's that time of year again: Rake-a-thon is on the horizon! Coalition, along with Temple and Drexel, are hoping to make this year's annual fundraiser the most of successful one yet. Whether it is flyering, driving, or raking, there is always a way that you can contribute to this year's fundraiser, so stay in tune for more details!
Outreach/Education committee is excited to kick off this school year with a couple of events in the coming few weeks, more details to come. We also hope to increase our collaboration with other clubs on campus, so if you would like to help us reach out to clubs that you are in, we would love for you to join our committee. Looking forward to seeing everyone soon!
From our build coordinator, Erica: "I hope you are ready to come out and volunteer for some great builds. Our first Penn Habitat build is tentatively scheduled for Saturday, September 14. Stay tuned for more information about how you can get involved during our first GBM."
