The Ramona High School Habitat Club has been approved to become a Habitat for Humanity Campus Chapter. Through this partnership, the students will be able to use additional resources and materials to make a greater impact in their community.
For over a year, the Habitat Club at Ramona High School has been advocating on their campus for Habitat for Humanity’s mission of eliminating substandard housing and volunteering their time on Habitat projects. The students have shown a major commitment to Habitat’s cause especially when called upon to help thank one of Habitat’s biggest donor’s, Valspar. The students assembled on their campus football field to spell out Thank You on behalf of the homeowners who were helped by Valspar’s paint donation.
The club has also donated to Habitat Riverside, volunteered for several projects, and held a benefit concert on April 14, 2012 at Back to the Grind café to raise awareness and funds for affordable housing.
The City of Arts & Innovation thrives on local philanthropy and the students volunteering their time to Ramona High School’s Habitat Club are doing their part to come together and give back to their community. The club sets an example for Riverside youth of how rewarding it can be to get involved in the community.
