Recently, a group of twenty students from Leaders, DECA and video clubs at Newfield High School volunteered their time to help build and repair houses for Habitat for Humanity. Newfield High School students spent most of their day in masks and utility belts stripping down a house of old materials including insulation and foam board. Students spent five hours working together to improve a community and to make a difference. Their volunteerism assisted in Habitat for Humanity’s effort to build 10-12 homes per year in Suffolk County.
Habitat for Humanity is a nonprofit charity focused on providing housing to the disadvantaged, with a focus on communities impacted by natural disasters and those targeted for community revitalization. The Middle Country School District is incredibly proud of this group of 20 students who volunteered their time to give back to the community. Through opportunities like these, Middle Country provides its students with ways to not only be successful in the classroom, but also be well-rounded citizens.
