DSU Football assists Habitat for Humanity projects
August 17, 2010
Dakota State University's football team volunteered to help the Habitat for Humanity project in Madison, S.D. last weekend. Partial Trojan football team helped paint houses and other projects.
This is one of the many projects that Habitat for Humanity does to be able to help and support the building of houses in the Madison area.
The Trojan Football team had their time to help and enhance their involvement with the community as part of the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) Champions of Character program.
DSU football student-athletes took part of community/volunteer service for a minimum of 10 hours each semester. "We have had many of our athletes get started with their hours even before the season started and this is just one example of the many projects we have helped within the area," said head coach Josh Anderson. "High character kids are who we are going to build the program around and these young men are responding accordingly."
Barbara Johnson is the executive director of the East Central South Dakota Habitat for Humanity. For more information or interested in volunteering in the Habitat for Humanity project, contact Barbara Johnson at 605-427-9906.
