CFCC Carpentry and Construction Management Technology Students Partner with Cape Fear Habitat for Humanity for Playhouse Project
Wilmington, NC — Cape Fear Community College’s Carpentry and Construction Management Technology programs have recently partnered with Cape Fear Habitat for Humanity to build playhouses for the organization’s Playhouse Project.
Habitat for Humanity’s Playhouse Project is part of an ongoing effort to find unique ways to bring new groups together around the issue of affordable housing. CFCC Carpentry and Construction Management Technology students are prebuilding playhouses in preparation for Habitat for Humanity’s one-day event where sponsors will bring a team to construct and decorate the playhouses for local children in need.
“Students building these playhouses are not only improving their skills, but they are also impacting lives of children and families in our community. I am sure each of the students involved will never forget this project,” said Jim Morton, CFCC president. “This is an ideal partnership.”
“What a win-win for everyone involved,” said Dean of Career and Technical Education Mark Council. “The Playhouse Project will benefit our community for years to come.”
“We are thrilled with CFCC’s willingness to partner with us on this project,” said Lauren McKenzie, Cape Fear Habitat for Humanity Executive Director. “Cape Fear Habitat is committed to building a better future for the children we serve and this project is a way to serve even more children in our community. Every child deserves their own safe place to play and use their imagination. I cannot wait to see the look of joy on their faces when they are gifted their very own playhouse.”
