Student Habitat Chapter Raises $10,000 With "Trick or Treat for Change"
November 1, 2007
BLOOMINGTON, Ill. – The joint Illinois Wesleyan and Illinois State University chapter
of Habitat for Humanity raised more than $10,000 during its fourth annual Trick or
Treat for Change event on Oct. 31.
More than 450 IWU and ISU students walked Bloomington-Normal neighborhoods on Halloween
and collected $9,286.90. An additional anonymous donation of $1,000 brought the total
beyond the group's goal of $10,000 for the event.
This brings the chapter's total fundraising for the year to $18,086.90, more than
a third of the $50,000 needed to sponsor the 13th consecutive student-built house.
“Habitat of McLean Co. is honored and blessed to have such an active, dedicated Collegiate
Chapter,” said McLean County Volunteer Coordinator Kristen Sand.
The IWU-ISU Habitat Collegiate Chapter has completed one home a year since 1995, and
in 2006 received a second-place Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter Partnership Award for Campus-Community
