Habitat holiday

Junior Audrey Ye helps a child build a gingerbread house Dec. 2 during the WUSTL chapter of Habitat for Humanity holiday party at Mudd House. The party was hosted entirely by students, and the attendees were home buyers and their families whom the WUSTL group has helped over the past year. Below, sophomore Carley Kadlec helps children decorate Christmas tree ornaments during the party.

Habitat for Humanity is a nonprofit organization whose goal is to eliminate poverty housing worldwide. Habitat brings families and communities in need together with volunteers and resources to build decent, affordable housing. The WUSTL chapter encourages students to make a positive difference in the St. Louis community. Its main focus is to raise funds for building Habitat homes, raise awareness about the need for affordable housing and to actually build alongside future Habitat homeowners at Habitat construction sites.
