FHSU volunteers to spend winter break helping Habitat for Humanity

Nineteen Fort Hays State University students and one faculty member will spend the week of winter break in Santa Fe, N.M., volunteering with Habitat for Humanity, a nonprofit Christian ministry devoted to building homes for those in need.

The completed homes are sold to qualified families at an affordable price under a no-profit, no-interest loan. The loan payments are then used toward building additional Habitat houses.

"An alternative winter break is a great way for students to impact others and provide them with an opportunity to travel to gain experience to make them forward thinking, world ready," said Alexis Mesmer, Hays senior, the student coordinator for Tigers in Service.

Tigers in Service is a student-run organization whose mission is to promote and provide community service opportunities locally, nationally and globally.
