Throughout the years, BT's chapter of Habitat for Humanity has participated in numerous fundraisers, including bake sales and Data-Match. Many of BT's Habitat members have become active in leading college Habitat chapters. Contrary to popular belief, students do NOT have to be 16 years of age to belong to Habitat! The shortage of decent, affordable housing in our community is a problem that requires the help of ALL. Thousands of dollars are needed each year to provide the building materials for the homes Habitat builds. There's an opportunity to serve for students of all ages.
