Habitat sets winter trip
ONU’s Habitat for Humanity chapter is taking its first winter break trip with five students and an advisor working in New Orleans, La., from Dec. 31 to Jan. 7. The students will be working with Project Homecoming because the New Orleans Area Habitat for Humanity did not have spaces available for the winter break.
LeeAnne Sipe, assistant director of Residence Life, who is coordinating the project, explains, “With the transition to semesters, students have a longer winter break than ever before. The group decided to capitalize on this by volunteering a week of their time to their mission of providing affordable housing to needy families. Interest in this trip exceeded my expectations, and we hope that it should be successful so that ONU can continue making a difference for years to come.”
