UCR business students once again partnered with Habitat for Humanity to help refurbish local seniors' homes. 

Habitat for Humanity(July 22, 2013)

On Friday, July 19, UCR business students earned service hours volunteering for Habitat for Humanity's Brush of Kindness, a program designed to help paint homes for local seniors.  

In just four hours the SoBA team transformed a senior citizen's home in the Il Sorento mobile home park in Moreno Valley. Students learn to paint a home, work hard in the heat and enjoy the fellowship of their peers.  

Habitat for Humanity is one of SoBA's premier community partners, providing UCR students exposure to the many regional housing needs of its citizens. In recent years, SoBA students have logged thousands of volunteer hours and painted and refurbished dozens of homes.

The next volunteer opportunity is scheduled during the fall term.
