Junior Habitat for Humanity volunteers step out on ‘Giving Tuesday’

Students of North Babylon HS help to build Suffolk County homes


BAY SHORE -- Students from North Babylon High School came out for "Giving Tuesday" -- to give a little help to a family looking to rebuild their Bay Shore home.

Habitat for Humanity volunteers worked to build the Valenica family’s house on Harrison Avenue early on Tuesday morning. A part of Habitat's Student Build Program, the student-volunteers help raise funds in their schools. Then, they use those funds for home construction.

"So, it's not just raising funds for a charity they can't imagine or see,” said Diane Burke of the Suffolk chapter of Habitat for Humanity. “It's raising funds for a charity and then actually putting it to work."

Catherine and Inner Valenica will be moving from Brentwood into their new home with their three children when it is completed. After they move in, the Valencia family plans to have a housewarming to get to know their new neighbors.
