Habitat for Humanity of Goldsboro-Wayne is looking for organizations or individuals willing to feed college students who will be coming to help build a house in Wayne County during the Weeks of March 2, 9 and 16.

Habitat officials say college students from all over the country seek out ways to make their spring break rewarding, and this year, students from three colleges are coming. These students, from Mercyhurst College, Providence College, and Springfield College will need lunch each day, and Habitat volunteers are asking that local cooks help feed the young people while they work.

Organizations interested in providing lunch to a group of 20 can contact the Habitat office at 736-9592 and ask for Adrienne.

Since organizing in November 2001, the local Habitat affiliate has partnered with 33 qualified families and the community to build decent, affordable houses. For information contact Lee Gray at 736-9592 or visit the Web site at www.habitatgoldsboro.org.
