IWU, ISU Habitat for Humanity Chapter Receives Award

August 24, 2010

BLOOMINGTON, Ill. – Illinois Wesleyan and Illinois State Universities’ joint student chapter of Habitat for Humanity has been selected for the 2010 Habitat for Humanity Campus Chapter of the Year award.

Impressed by the universities’ creative partnership, the selection committee chose to award the chapters jointly, noting that the collaboration of the chapters allows for an increased impact on the community. Through the generous support of State Farm Insurance Company, the chapters will receive $4,500 together to participate in a Collegiate Challenge trip.  

“The work you have done to provide simple, decent and affordable housing and spread Habitat for Humanity’s mission is extraordinary and serves as an outstanding example for other chapters,” said Manager of Youth Volunteer Engagement Cody Logsdon in a letter to the chapters.

The student chapters will be recognized for their accomplishments at the 2010 Awards Banquet at the Youth Leadership Conference in October.
