Hairless for Habitat
A total of $1,578.87 was raised by ONU’s Habitat for Humanity chapter in its annual “Hairless for Habitat” event.
Habitat supporters donate funds to see members shave their heads for the cause. Four chapter members lost their hair on Jan. 25 and enough was raised so that chapter advisor Rev. Vern LaSala will have his head shaved next week.
The mission of Habitat for Humanity is to eliminate substandard housing worldwide by building decent, inexpensive, adequate homes for families who need them. ONU’s habitat chapter includes students from the entire ONU community.
During the academic year, members work on one or more homes in the Hardin County area. Each spring break about 100 members make trips to other parts of the country to work on Habitat home projects.
Newly shorn Habitat members include, from left, Jay Gindlesberger, a fourth-year pharmacy student from Magnolia, Ohio; Nathan Kochheiser, a fifth-year pharmacy student from Lexington, Ohio; Greg Dell, a senior in management from Tiffin, Ohio; and Ross Robison, a second-year pharmacy student from Fort Wayne, Ind.
