This is the second Habitat for Humanity home sponsored by UNC Health Care in the past year. The first is owned Felicia Weaver with the division of Plastic Surgery and was built by more than 300 UNC Health Care employees along with their friends and families. Check out the video about Felicia's home’s construction.

This year’s home is being built as part of the University’s Build a Block campaign. The goal of this campaign is to build 10 homes for 10 families of UNC or UNC Health Care employees in the 2011 academic year. For questions about volunteering or the website please contact Adwoa Asare at aasare@orangehabitat.org or (919) 932-7077, ext. 216.
