WKU Habitat for Humanity prepares for winter break project in Oklahoma

By  | 

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) -- The WKU affiliate of Habitat for Humanity will be heading to Oklahoma City during the university's winter break.

The WKU students will be building and repairing area homes as part of the International Habitat for Humanity's "Collegiate Challenge."

The group's adviser says it's an opportunity to donate the most precious thing they have to offer, which is time.

"When we're building on these trips, we're not only building the houses, we're helping to build partnerships and relationships," said Bryan Reka. "We're building communities. We're building people's hope in theirselves, and their dreams. And this is part of why the students and myself enjoy these trips."

13 News will look to follow up on those participating in this project after they are finished taking part.
