A group of UW-Stout students are skipping out on typical spring break activities to spend their week of vacation building homes with Habitat for Humanity.
Nearly 30 students will travel to Phoenix City, Alabama to take part in Habitat for Humanity's Collegiate Challenge, where they'll join other students from around the country to construct homes for needy families.
"It's a nice chance to get away from the normal routine and go actually do something good for someone else," says senior Robert Ziewacs, a three year veteran of the trips and a construction management major.
As part of their fundraising efforts, the group asked for donations to sign a board that they will bring them to add to the frame of one of the homes they'll be building.
