Habitat for Humanity received a helping hand on their Racine Ridge project this past week. The University of Virginia Jubilate Choir volunteered their time to help build a home during their spring break. As thanks, Habitat for Humanity held a breakfast in the group’s honor, which was followed by a brief performance from the Choir. Executive Director Shelia Wiggins spoke to the group, thanking them for their assistance and letting them know what an impact it would have in the community. Wiggins also explained other aspects of Habitat for Humanity’s operations, including the critical home repair program, and welcomed the choir to return at any time.
