Habitat Build Brings BW Community Together in Service

For the second year in a row, BW's Habitat for Humanity chapter organized a "Building Walls" construction project that saw a fully-framed home rise in the parking lot of Bond Hall in single day. 

In partnership with “Crossroads Mission” and powered by 130 volunteer students, staff, alumni and faculty, the group constructed and donated the interior and exterior walls for a deserving family to be selected by the Medina County Habitat affiliate. The group also constructed 7 sheds for homeowners in Cuyahoga County.
