FORT MYERS, Fla. – The FGCU women's soccer team recently took time to assist in putting a roof on a house for Habitat for Humanity on April 13 at the local Lehigh Acres location. The Eagles spent the day rehabilitating a home and making sure the roof was secure on one of the houses for the community.
"It was a great opportunity for our team to make a difference in the community,” said head coach Jim Blankenship. “The team enjoyed helping out and would like to get involved again.”
Habitat for Humanity is a nonprofit, Christian ministry founded on the conviction that every man, woman and child should have a decent, safe and affordable place to live. The organization helps build with people in need regardless of race or religion. They welcome volunteers and supporters from all backgrounds.
The project is part of an FGCU athletics commitment to service in the community. The Eagles look forward to a continued relationship with the Habitat for Humanity organization.
