Centennial’s Key Club is inviting all to help Habitat for Humanity build a home for a US Army Veteran. This is the first time in over 20 years that Habitat has paired with a veteran. Bobby Hart and April Adams are both graduates from Urbana High School and Centennial organizations have been asked to help out.
The house will be built in Spring 2015. All of the students 16 and older and the staff are invited to volunteer in the process. Along with actually building the house, there will be five message boards (one for each class plus the staff) on display that are open for messages of gratitude to the veteran family. These messages boards will actually go into the house. The messages will cost $1 and the money raised will be used for the costs of building the home.
There will be a competition among classes at Centennial to see who can raise the most money. This competition is also between Centennial, Central and Urbana. The message boards will be out in the main lobby before or after school until this Tuesday, November 25th! Key Club member Rachel Mihm tells the Centinal, “This is a really awesome way to support the community and it would be great to see people participate in it!”
