Villanova University Spring Service Break Recap

Last month, sixteen college freshmen from Villanova University spent their spring break week working on Habitat Catawba Valley’s new home construction and Habitat Repairs!  While they were here, they also participated in fun activities and had the opportunity to get to know our community better.  

Activities included:

  • Mass at St. Aloysius Catholic Church
  • Hike at Hawksbill Mountain with HFHCV staff
  • Pizza Party hosted by St. Aloysius Catholic Church
  • Evening Service and Dinner at Bethany Lutheran Church
  • Wildcat Welcome hosted by HFHCV at the ReStore
  • Lunch Speakers:

    •    Tina Morgan, HFHCV Homeowner Services Director
    •    Mitzi Gellman, HFHCV Executive Director
    •    Rob Howard, Mitsubishi
