Rhodes Gets Ready for Next Habitat for Humanity Build

Publication Date: 9/29/2011

Rhodes’ Habitat for Humanity chapter is one of the oldest collegiate chapters in the nation. Since 1983, Habitat for Humanity of Greater Memphis has built more than 370 homes in partnership with Memphis-area families and generous, community-minded businesses, faith-based organizations and individuals. The cost of construction is kept low through the use of volunteer labor.

In September, volunteers from Rhodes and CB Richard Ellis raised walls, hung blue board and lifted trusses in the Trinity Park area. Rhodes’ next build is this Saturday, Oct. 1.

Then on Monday, Oct. 3, the Rhodes’ Habitat for Humanity team members will wear t-shirts for World Habitat Day. This day is dedicated to calling attention to the current global state of the human habitat and pushing toward adequate housing for all.

Those interested in knowing more about these events can contact Rhodes Chaplain Rev. Walt Tennyson at (901) 843-3804 or tennysonw@rhodes.edu
