Lubbock Christian University donated a variety of useful household items to seven families currently in the Lubbock Habitat for Humanity program.
“Lubbock Christian University recognizes the need to give back to the community in various ways,” explained Shannon Sudduth, media relations coordinator at LCU. “We are thankful for the efforts of Habitat for Humanity and are excited to be a part of it.”
Lubbock Habitat for Humanity is a Christian organization that builds and renovates affordable quality housing for low-income families. In the past 28 years, Lubbock Habitat for Humanity has built 134 homes and provided shelter for over 452 adults and children.
The LCU community collected and donated housing items that could be given to families moving into new homes from Habitat for Humanity. Instead of normal decorations or flower arrangements, donated items were used as table centerpieces for the Inspiring Evening event on April 19.
“An Inspiring Evening with Jen Hatmaker” was the second installment in the Inspiring Evening series which brings notable guest speakers to campus in an effort to make a positive impact on the community. Hatmaker is known, beyond her speaking and writing, for her humanitarian efforts.
Three of the seven families were presented the donations at the Habitat office on Monday, May 9.
