UT Tyler Teams Up with Habitat

April 7, 2009

Student-volunteers help construct a house in Corpus Christ during this year's Alternative Spring Break trip.

Last month during UT Tyler’s Alternative Spring Break trip, UT Tyler students traveled to Corpus Christi to help build a house established by Habitat for Humanity of Taft.

UT Tyler will partner with Habitat for Humanity of Smith County as university volunteers will begin the first phase of construction on a home April 14 – 18.

The home's walls will be built on campus between the Ratliff Building South and Ratliff Building North. Once the walls are completed, they will be stored on campus and moved to the home’s permanent location in August.

For more information or to volunteer for the UT Tyler Build, contact Carol Killingley, administrative services officer/community relations, 903.566.7050 or carol_kilingley@uttyler.edu.
