College students Lending a Hand in Beaufort

While many college students are spending their spring breaks at resorts, others are spending theirs helping others in our area.

Nearly a dozen students from Movarian College in Pennsylvania are in the low country this week painting, roofing, and hammering away to help construct homes for those in need. This is the third year they college has partnered with the local Habitat for Humanity in this Colligate Challenge Week. An experience they say, they've enjoyed.

"It feels really good to do this work, we feel like we're doing something and it's nice to be down here for our spring break and seeing something come out of what we're doing down here for," said Movarian College Student, Robin Miller.

While these students will be back at school next week, another group of college students from the University of Dayton in Ohio will be in Beaufort to help out in the same way.
