Habitat for Humanity

Carlisy Abreu, Chelsey Balistrieri, and Rebecca Sturniolo took part in Habitat for Humanity on Saturday, 3/28/15. As part of a collaboration with the students of Villa Maria, ASID students took part in knocking down walls, ripping up baseboards, and other demolition tasks. Quoting Ms. Sturniolo, "I believe we all learned from this experience, not only by helping the community but by also seeing first hand how certain aspects of a home are constructed. We all had a lot of fun and the experience was definitely rewarding."
