UW-RF Plans Habitat for Humanity Project

The UW-River Falls campus chapter of Habitat for Humanity will build a shed on campus April 23-27 to give to a local owner of a Habitat home. Construction will occur during the weekdays in the parking lot on the west side of South Hall.

Habitat homes are built with only the necessities, so most homes are without garages or storage sheds. UW-RF students are providing a homeowner with the gift of a shed, while at the same time raising awareness of the campus organization and the amount of poverty in the world.

Habitat for Humanity was created to eliminate poverty housing from the world by making decent shelter a matter of conscience and action. The mission of Habitat for Humanity is to establish affordable housing, build and rehabilitate homes, and raise funds to allow the organization to continue its work. It is building today for a better, safer and happier tomorrow.

This year marks the fourth in a row that the chapter has either constructed a home or a storage shed.
