On Tuesday, April 22nd, the Florida State women’s basketball team put away its basketballs and picked up its power tools to lend a helping hand to an area resident.
As part of a “Habitat for Humanity” project, the Seminoles took part in a home build for a Crawfordville woman and her family. Players, coaches and staff took the half hour drive down highway 319 to help hammer, saw and erect the exterior walls of a three bedroom, one bathroom home that will be completed later this summer.
Habitat for Humanity seeks to eliminate poverty housing and homelessness from the world, and to make decent shelter a matter of conscience and action. They invite people from all walks of life to work together in partnership to help build houses with families in need.
Community service remains a cornerstone of head coach Sue Semrau’s Florida State women’s basketball program where players are motivated and driven to lend a hand when opportunity calls.
