Habitat For Humanity Collegiate Challenge is in Tallahassee

By  | 

Some college students ditched the beach over spring break, to break ground instead and build houses in Tallahassee, in the Habitat for Humanity Collegiate Challenge.

Students from Michigan, Kentucky and Indiana came together to help eliminate poverty housing.

They are working on a home being built for a family in need over in the Mabry Oaks neighborhood on Vanfleet Street.

The home is at the half way mark and the students plan to keep helping through March 18th.

Philip Miller says,"The Tallahassee community they embrace us, they feed us real well, they just do an awesome job with that. So every year this is a highlight for us 18 students to come down here and be apart of this community."

This year marks the 22nd anniversary of the Collegiate Challenge program nationally.

Over the years they've raised more than 15 million dollars.
