Villanova Students Gear Up for a Week of Service with Habitat Catawba Valley

Jan 31, 2017 | News

During their week-long visit, the students will stay at St. Aloysius Catholic Church in Hickory.  In addition to working on builds and repairs, students will have the opportunity to engage with the local community at church dinners and community gatherings.  Speakers from the community will also be joining us to discuss our community’s needs and Habitat’s mission.  

“We are excited to arrive in Hickory and serve and learn in any way possible,” the group shared.  

Each semester, Villanova University provides opportunities for students, faculty, staff and alumni to serve with people and partner organizations who work every day to improve lives locally, throughout the United States and abroad.  Students are encouraged to engage in service experiences, both locally and globally, so they learn from others, provide public service to the community and help create a more sustainable world.  Over 200 Villanova University students will be participating in service trips this spring.
