Project Rebuild 2016
Thank you to the students and staff who spent their April vacation volunteering with Habitat for Humanity as part of Project Rebuild.
They continued a long tradition of serving those most in need. Click here for Project Rebuild 2016 photos.
This year marked our 11th year working with Habitat for Humanity in Newburgh, NY, and the 25th year that Project Rebuild has been under the direction of Br. Jim Halliday, FMS.
Through Project Rebuild, a team of students and chaperones travel to a Habitat for Humanity site each April vacation to help construct housing for those most in need. Students also offer their time and share their lives with guests of other charities/non-profits in the area.
Participants are asked to obtain pledges to help buy the equipment and supplies needed for the week. Qualified students apply in the fall through an application process.
The 2016 team consisted of 14 students and five adult leaders working nine hour days on a new home for a low-income family. They also helped to renovate a community center and volunteered at a local soup kitchen. In the evenings, they participated in additional team-building activities that included bowling, laser tag, and go-karting.
