WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. - Members of the Lycoming College Habitat for Humanity gave a week of their summer vacation to participate in the chapter's annual "boot camp." This year, students participating in the program returned to campus one week prior to the start of the fall semester to work on a project on West Fourth Street sponsored by the Greater Lycoming Habitat for Humanity.
"It's very satisfying to know that you are helping people who really need the help," says Damian Priznar, a junior criminal justice major. "And it doesn't matter if you are struggling with a lot of work or just cleaning up a little bit, it's great to come back to school and work with friends to serve others."
Other students joining Priznar on the project included Ariel Burton, Paige Cole, Kayla Craig, Tri Do, K.C. Failor, Rachel Krebs, Stephanie Robinson, Eric Smithgall, Teresa Tickle and Denyse Walters.
Lycoming College Habitat for Humanity is a Christian-based organization that has been active on campus since 1990. Each spring, Lycoming Habitat participates in the Collegiate Challenge Spring Break program during which student volunteers travel to other states to assist in the building of quality, affordable housing for those in need. Lycoming Habitat dedicated its first house in December 2003.
