Habitat for Humanity

Peter Iversen

Habitat for Humanity is the internationally recognized organization that campaigns against homelessness by building low-income houses. The chapter at Lawrence has assisted in countless buildings in the area. No experience is necessary. With merely a hammer and some nails, Lawrentians have been working to eliminate homelessness here in Appleton for years.
In addition to building low-income houses, Habitat puts on two fun-filled fundraisers throughout the year. The first is Jazzy-Jazz-Jazz-Jazz, which features an evening of live swing and dancing. The second event is Disco Ball. This historic party invites you to put on your favorite Disco threads and dance the night away to great music. All proceeds from these two events directly benefit Habitat.
Habitat also goes on an annual trip to build houses in other communities. In the past we have gone as far away as Georgia and Florida. This is always a fun way to spend your spring break and to help those that most need it.For more information contact Brian Hilgeman.
