HOUSTON — University of Houston Baseball spent a fall Saturday with Habitat for Humanity, helping revive and build a home in the local community.
The 2013 Cougars joined forces with Wells Fargo Bank in an attempt to help a local family secure their dream home. The day’s focus was on cornice work; trim work and any unfinished work on the local home.
“Helping Habitat for Humanity was one of the most worthwhile experiences I have had a student-athlete here at Houston,” junior Landon Appling said. "We were able to help build a home for a deserving family in need and that helped build character within our team, which made the experience special.”
With this service, Houston student-athletes continue to showcase their commitment to the local community and the desire to help those who support them on and off the playing surface.
ABOUT HABITAT FOR HUMANITY
Houston Habitat is the local affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International. Established in 1987, we have built 900 homes and served more than 3,000 Houstonians as Family Partners. We welcome more than 5,000 volunteers each year to help out with home building, clerical work and retail. Houston Habitat works to eliminate substandard housing by helping hard-working families purchase simple, decent homes in which to live. This is possible through corporate sponsors, individual donors and foundation grants that fund the majority of construction costs on each home. Our Family Partners are approved and qualify for down payment assistance and a zero-interest mortgage carried by Houston Habitat for Humanity.
