On June 19, student members of Toms River High School South’s chapter of Habitat for Humanity, under the guidance of club adviser, Charlene Wallace, celebrated a year-long effort of fundraising and community awareness by presenting the Northern Ocean County Habitat for Humanity a $3,000 donation to help fund current and future projects.
Through bake sales, food fundraisers, and sponsoring the the Spring Fling dance, students were able to rally together for this amazing cause.
Dylan Wallace, president, Reagan Czech, vice president, Caitlin Carroll, secretary, and Marina Rivera, treasurer, met with the Northern Ocean County Habitat for Humanity’s Executive Director Suzan Fichtner in Bayville at a home that is currently being constructed for a community member there. The students toured the home with Suzan, met with volunteers, and gained a deeper appreciation of the impact of their fundraising efforts.
This year’s seniors hope to continue their involvement with Habitat for Humanity throughout their college careers and next year’s club members have even bigger fundraising plans and involvement ideas.
