Spring 2017 Committee Application
The application will close at midnight EST on Sunday, January 22nd.
Committees are a great new way to get involved with Purdue Habitat. This is your opportunity to join our team and help Habitat for Humanity in a greater way! We will be offering three positions on each of our new committees:
- Advocacy – works with our Advocacy Chair to advertise for upcoming events
- Development – works with our Development Chair to educate and spread awareness about Habitat for Humanity’s mission
- Fundraising – works with our Major Events Coordinators to plan smaller fundraising events to raise money for sponsoring a Purdue Student Chapter house each year
The Purdue University Habitat for Humanity Chapter is a nonprofit Christian housing organization. By partnering with low-income families to build simple, decent homes, Habitat works toward its goal of eliminating poverty housing. Purdue Habitat for Humanity works with Habitat for Humanity of Lafayette and with other local Habitat affiliates to construct homes in the area.
Purdue University’s chapter of Habitat for Humanity is one of the largest student-run organizations on campus. We provide our members with opportunities to get involved and make a difference not only in Lafayette, but also in other surrounding communities in need. We arrange weekend trips every Saturday to sites in the local area, trips over spring break around the nation, a summer international trip, some pretty awesome bike rides, and also have numerous fundraising, awareness, and social events throughout the year!
Our mission is working to eliminate poverty housing and to get students passionate about helping others and their community. Purdue Habitat raises money to sponsor construction of our own home in Lafayette and strives to educate the Purdue-Lafayette community about the problem of poverty housing in the United States and around the world.
On November 5th 2016, we raised the walls to the student chapter sponsored house. The future home owners, the Rodriguez family, came out to help. Students will be working to construct the house the rest of the school year working for 8 hours every Saturday.
Thank you to our Sponsors!!!!! Our house was funded with the help of these organizations.
