Habitat for Humanity holds fundraiser

April West

Starting today, Feb. 16 at 7 p.m., Lawrence’s chapter of Habitat for Humanity will be hosting a fundraiser, “Operation Home Delivery,” in Science Hall atrium to fund their spring break trip to New Orleans.
There will be a photo exhibition with images of the rebuilding efforts currently taking place, a silent auction, and free food and drinks. The photos of New Orleans will be up in the atrium until March 2.
The silent auction will include music from Heid’s Music, swing dance lessons, a gift certificate for a pound of chocolate, and many others from local businesses.
The Habitat for Humanity spring break trip leaves March 17 and returns March 24. There are still a few spots open and anyone that might be interested should contact Kristi at sandvena@lawrence.edu.
As Emily Palmer from Habitat for Humanity stated, “A lot of the people are under the impression that New Orleans is finished, when in fact it is far from done.
