Young Adult Habitat for Humanity
YOUNG ADULT HABITAT FOR HUMANITY
We are excited to announce that our second annual Young Adult Habitat for Humanity trip will take place June 21st-25th 2017. We will be returning to Boone, Iowa to work with The Heart of Iowa Habitat for Humanity chapter.
In May 2016, 11 young adults left from UUSG in Geneva and traveled five hours to Boone, Iowa. We worked with local Habitat members and members of the community for three days to build a house for a family of eight. In our three days on the job site, we were able to put up all four exterior walls, the interior walls and the supports necessary for the trusses to be placed.
This year, trip registration opens April 1st. The trip is open to members of the UUSG community ages 18-30. Questions can be directed to Lily Phillips.
This trip would not have been possible without the love and support from the UUSG community. To each and every person who donated time and money to support our trip, we would like to express our gratitude and say thank you!
The local newspaper, The Boone News Republican, visited us and wrote a great story about our 2016 trip. Read it here.
