Georgian Court students made their way to High Point, NC recently for a service trip with Habitat for Humanity! During the weeklong trip, students helped build a house for loving grandparents and their grandchildren and worked with community members to construct the new home from the ground up.
“Throughout their build, Georgian Court students engaged with the corporal works of mercy while exploring how to engage in service and justice, in their communities, and in their individual vocations upon their return,” said Carly Cohen, the university’s campus minister.
Habitat for Humanity—Building Hearts and Minds
She was joined on the Habitat for Humanity trip by Director of Campus Ministry Jeff Schaeffer and students Alyecia Craig-Woods, Anastasia Guglielmo, Victoria Payor, and Katie Barnes.
“The plot of land they were serving on was being transformed into a home, but that was not the only transformation taking place,” said Ms. Cohen. “Our students experienced a transformation of their hearts and perspectives as they continue to explore how to contribute to the common good.”
