SLW Centennial Senior Class Work with Habitat for Humanity

The Senior Class of St. Lucie West Centennial High School participated in an outreach project Saturday, November 1st. The service project was through Habitat for Humanity, which is a nonprofit based on the belief that every child, woman and man should have a decent, safe and affordable place to live.

The seniors woke up bright and early to get a head start on the project, which was a two bedroom, one bathroom house that needed to be gutted entirely. The students and their Senior Sponsors, Kerry Young and Carol Rondeau, took hammers and other tools to the drywall; they were assisted by a fellow Centennial teacher, Connie McCraw. After a lunch break and many trips to the dumpster, the house was gutted entirely and ready to be rebuilt. When the house is ready for a deserving family, the students and their sponsors will be able to go back and present the family with the key to their new home.
