The fundraising committee had a great semester! We supported Relay for Life by sellinggrilled cheese and henna tattoos. This was our second grilled cheese fundraiser of the semester and it was definitely a hit! We also organized a jelly-bean guessing game on Locust walk, with gift cards donated from local businesses as prizes for the winners. Overall we had a successful semester, especially in terms of brainstorming new annual fundraisers. Thanks to all of our committee members and supporters who helped out.
Thanks to everyone for a great semester! Have a great summer, and stay tuned next semester for more details about our annual Rake-A-Thon Fundraiser in the fall.
Thanks to everyone that supported Act! Speak! Build! Week. Our speaker dinner, coffee chat, and Shantytown were great events. See you next semester!
We ended the semester strong with our last build on Saturday, April 6th! Thanks to everyone that came out to help. Stay tuned for future builds beginning again in the Fall semester.
We finally have the Service Week underway! Starting the day after exams end, a group of Penn students will be volunteering with Habitat Philadelphia. We'll get to know one another through group meals and volunteer work, and people will finally have the chance to experience a build without worrying about schoolwork. The group will be composed of approximately ten students who, alongside the help of Habitat for Humanity construction crews, will work on Habitat Philadelphia's newest project!
- Thanks to everyone who supported our Relay for Life team! We raised $120 as a group to donate to the cause.
- Last Monday, Shonda Brinson, Volunteer Coordinator for Habitat Philadelphia, came to Penn Habitat's exec meeting to discuss our upcoming projects and planning! We all had fun getting to know her, and had a great conversation about Habitat's goals, our May service days, and our upcoming build workshop next semester. We all hope that Shonda will become an increasingly visible member of our team.
