College Students Camp Out

By Shaun Field

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 or call (609)-503-4257.
