This a guest post from the campus sponsors of the upcoming Habitat for Humanity build:
In the spirit of the Wake Forest motto, Pro Humanitate, students, faculty, and staff are invited to join the campus community in a special Habitat for Humanity build on Oct. 14 from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. on Davis Field. (Originally, Manchester Plaza was announced as the location, but the site has been moved.) Volunteers will help assemble walls that will be used in the construction of a local Habitat house. Habitat for Humanity seeks to end poverty housing by helping thousands of low-income families secure affordable housing. Since 2005, Habitat has grown from serving 25,000 families each year to serving over 300,000 families annually in the U.S. and more than 70 countries.
Register to participate by signing up for a 20 minute slot. 25 volunteers can participate per volunteer shift. The only requirement is a signed waiver and closed-toed shoes. There may be minor disruption due to noise from the build; although, it is our understanding that the potential noise caused should not rise to the level of cancelling class or meetings.

The On-Campus Build is a special event in preparation for the next Leadership Project featuring Jonathan Reckford, CEO of Habitat for Humanity. The Leadership Project is designed to celebrate the many ways leadership development is taught and inspired at Wake Forest and to engage members of our community with compelling personal leadership stories from a wide range of experiences and perspectives. Save the date and plan to attend the keynote address on Oct. 20 at 6 p.m. in Brendle Recital Hall.
