Students Assist Local Habitat for Humanity Project

March 7, 2011

91769March 7, 2011, Greencastle, Ind. — A weekend Habitat for Humanity project, which involved the restoration of a home in Bainbridge, is the subject of a story in today's edition of Greencastle's Banner-Graphic. "Some of the volunteers tearing up the drywall are members of Kappa Alpha Theta Sorority," writes Josh Garvey. "Janie Langham said one of the benefits to volunteering with Habitat was the real time results. 'You can really see the results as you go,' she said. Ellen Clayton agreed. 'You can always raise money for a cause, but you don't always get to see where it's going,' she said. The two are part of the executive board for Habitat for Humanity at DePauw."(junior Emily Dye at work on Saturday; courtesy: Banner-Graphic)

The text continues, "Emily Dye and Emily Boyle 61442were also in the same room. All four acknowledged that Habitat was a way to give back to the community while still keeping a flexible schedule."
