Hey guys! My name is Tracy Phan. I am a freshman, and I am the new Major Fundrasing Chair. Basically, my job is to run Gift Wrap Across Georgia for Habitat for Humanity. This is our largest fundrasier. Last year, volunteers raised $11,200 in just the week and a half before Christmas! There is so much that can be gained from this just one event, and after raising this money, it goes to co-sponsoring another house. That, I feel, is the best thing about Habitat. Unlike the other service clubs out there, you don't just raise money, but you take an active part in raising it, AND you can see where it goes; there are so many people that do not have a warm bed to sleep and a safe roof to shelter them. We may complain about our dorm situations, but let's face it... There are lots of people with much worse housing situations, but we can do something about it!

Whether it is taking part in a build, wrapping for a couple of hours, or coming out to our percentage nights, I encourage everyone to get involved. There are many upcoming events and opportunites to do so. Check the calendar and save the dates!

Campus Outreach and Ambassadors
posted on 24 Feb 2011 by UGA Habitat

The position of Campus Outreach within the Habitat Chapter of the University of Georgia becomes the voice of the active student body of both Habitat members at UGA and the University itself. CO is in charge of being liaison between the student body and the rest of the Board of Directors. CO does this by interviewing active members to be selected as Ambassadors: more personal liaisons between the Board and active members that also act as natural leaders within Habitat and the University in general. CO is in charge of these ambassadors and uses them to help establish and lead the active body. CO is responsible for getting the organizations at UGA to participate with Habitat in various activities. These organizations range from large scale operations with the Greek Community to smaller, but just as important events with smaller clubs. CO is the liaison between Habitat and Volunteer UGA.
