This September marked the sixth year the Whirlpool Corporation has come to IU Bloomington to help construct a Habitat for Humanity home on campus in partnership with the Kelley School of Business, City of Bloomington and Habitat for Humanity of Monroe County.
The build attracted more than 400 IU undergraduate and graduate volunteers who teamed up with faculty, administrators and alumni to construct the home near the Virgil T. DeVault Alumni Center. William R. Fry Scholars and students in the Business Honors Program, Civic Leadership Development, the Kelley Living Learning Center and the Hutton Honors College were all part of the 10-day building blitz.
“It’s amazing to see the community and campus come together for the Whirlpool Build,” said Christina Zerfas, Kelley School of Business junior and president of the Habitat for Humanity IU Chapter. “It’s a really awesome experience to see that teamwork combine into something tangible for a future homeowner.”
