Members of the RSC Student Senate, along with Student Activities staff, volunteered April 25 at a Habitat for Humanity neighborhood in northwest Oklahoma City, laying sod and planting a tree.

Every year Student Senate members volunteer for the Habitat for Humanity organization, but students never know where they are going or what they will be doing until they arrive at the site.

 

The volunteers laid sod at two houses in the Hope Crossing neighborhood, which is comprised solely of Habitat for Humanity homes. At the second home, a tree was planted for the family’s dedication, which occurred the next day. The work was laborious but not completely devoid of amusement.

“It was both fun and hard, but you know what? Anything worth doing is worth the effort it takes to do it with excellence,” Sen. Rebeckah Hadick said. “And the feeling of a job well done is reward enough.”

Student Senate plans to volunteer with Habitat for Humanity again next year, upholding the annual tradition of community leadership.

“Working with Habitat was both rewarding and exciting—knowing that the houses we were working on were going to a good cause,” Sen. Tyler Brown said.
