This past fall, students who are part of Shelter Island School’s National Honor Society and friends raised over $1,200 to earn their build day with Habitat For Humanity, a non-profit organization devoted to building “simple, decent, and affordable” housing for families in need. Additionally, a generous $1,000 grant from the Presbyterian Church allowed the team to shop at Home Depot and bring supplies along for the build site.
