On the campus of The College of New Jersey, Bonner Scholars, fraternities and clubs have all joined together to push an initiative to raise funds and awareness about Habitat of Trenton.
The latest Habitat-related events on campus included: Alpha Chi Rho (AXP) Fraternity’s campus camp-out and ReStore raffle and TCNJ Club Habitat’s second annual car wash.
The campus “camp-out” was held outside the student center over the course of three days and two nights raised over $1,000 that was donated directly to Habitat of Trenton.
TCNJ Club Habitat raised another $300 for Habitat of Trenton as well, holding a car wash on the corner of Lower Ferry Rd and Pennington Rd in Ewing. Each car wash cost $5.
Jess Malone, the president of Club Habitat, said, “Living so close to the Trenton community, all of our chapter members are able to see the impact our volunteer work has on the low-income residents of Trenton.”
Malone also said that Club Habitat has multiple fundraisers and events planned for the upcoming semesters.
The College of New Jersey’s connection with Habitat for Humanity is growing by the year and looks to be a vital resource for the years to come. If you have any questions about Habitat for Humanity or are interested in finding out more about opportunities to volunteer, donate or to participate in any of the programs offered contact email@example.com or call (609)-503-4257.
