The final week of the 2017 Spring Collegiate Challenge build will began this week, on Tuesday, March 27th. Students from Drew College Prep School will be on site until Saturday, April 1st and will work on the construction site of two Habitat homes.
The first four Collegiate Challenge teams have donated $9,450 and nearly 1,800 volunteer hours over the course of 15 days. The final team – Drew School – is flying in from San Francisco, California, and donated a total of $2,400, bringing total donations to $11,850, all of which will be used to help fund construction in the Pinhook Pocket neighborhood.
