Members of the Bronxville High School Habitat for Humanity Club hosted one of their most popular fundraisers during the homecoming football game on Oct. 1, raising more than $300.
Students and families were encouraged to make a $5 donation and sign two-by-four pieces of wood, which will assist Habitat for Humanity in building affordable housing for people who qualify for their services.
“There was such a fun atmosphere at homecoming, which contributed to our very successful fundraiser,” said Sasha Ircha, a Bronxville High School senior and club member. “Knowing these planks of wood will actually be used to build homes for people in need in the local area made us all really proud.”
The club’s next fundraiser is the annual gingerbread house decorating event in December.
