UE has committed $25,000 to the project. Half of that was raised by the student congress. This is the first time the college has committed financially to a Habitat build.
"This is really sort of a groundbreaking thing for the university," said Jesse Willingham of UE Habitat for Humanity, "but something that will really help us maintain a better relationship and get to volunteer more because the thing we want to do is give more to the organization."
Up to 50 students are expected to volunteer on the project, and the house is expected to be completed in early December.
