The Univerisity of Portland men’s lacrosse team will be volunteering with Habitat for Humanity on Saturday, November 16, according to the team’s faculty advisor Mark Meckler, business administration. The development at Southeast 171st and Division streets will be the largest Habitat build in Oregon and part of Habitat’s four-year bank of land that was purchased through fundraising efforts by A World of Hope: It Starts at Home. For the first time in Habitat’s history, all specialty builds will be active during the same time and at the same location. The Portland Pride Build, Women Build, Faith Build, and Youth United have all raised the necessary funds to begin construction on their sponsored homes. An estimated 10,000 volunteers will work side-by-side with 45 families to build the new community from the ground up, providing stability for approximately 150 children.
