Description: Habitat for Humanity seeks to eliminate poverty housing from the world and to make decent shelter a matter of conscience and action. We are the University of Rhode Island Habitat for Humanity. URI's chapter involves any students and staff who are interested in volunteering. Along with building, our chapter is involved with many on-campus events such as First Night, and Homecoming Weekend where we reach out to the University and share what Habitat for Humanity is all about. We also take part in fundraisers, such as the South County Habitat for Humanity "Pound the Pavement, Pound a Nail!" 5k, which is the most profitable fundraiser of the year. There are many ways to volunteer, from building to cleaning and helping sales at the Habitat ReStore, where all proceeds go to South County Habitat for Humanity's efforts. No previous experience is needed, and anyone can join at any time.
