VALDOSTA — Valdosta State University chapter of Habitat for Humanity volunteered recently at W.G. Nunn Elementary School.
Members brought miniature houses for students to paint during their art class, according to a school press release.
Sheila McCall's third-grade class and Shannon Best's fourth-grade class painted the wooden house sculptures to commemorate World Habitat Day, the United Nation's annual day recognizing the importance of shelter.
"Habitat has a world week every year during the first week of October where we go out and give back to our communities, and we wanted to start with the students first because they are the future," said Taylor Wyatt, VSU Habitat for Humanity event coordinator.
Habitat for Humanity focuses on building homes for locally impoverished individuals.
