"I love this organization. I have such a passion for it. It just means so much to me to help other people and I think this organization is the one where you can impact someone's life," said Holly Chappie. Both Chappie and Brittney Cesari are pictured above.
“It gives us an opportunity to give back to the community and to realize that not everyone is as fortunate as we are,” said team member Minnie Jones, a civil engineering student and the Habitat club's campus webmaster, who is pictured at right.
