Habitat Chapter Begins Tenth Home


Publication Date: 9/12/2008

The Rhodes chapter of Habitat for Humanity begins its annual fall build today (September 12).  From 7:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Rhodes volunteers will be framing, roofing, putting on doors, and completing initial blocking. 

Rhodes’ Habitat for Humanity chapter is one of the oldest collegiate chapters in the nation.  This will be the tenth home the chapter has constructed. 

Since 1983, Habitat for Humanity of Greater Memphis has built 310 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.
