Stratford resident and St Joseph High School junior Emily Recupero recently served as part of an enthusiastic group of St Joseph High School students for Habitat for Humanity of Coastal Fairfield County in Bridgeport.
The team travelled to several sites for Habitat, tackling a variety of jobs. Students worked alongside future Habitat homeowners, digging holes for fence posts, clearing tall weeds and debris and moving giant rocks from the sites in order to make these areas clean and safe.
Although this was the first time for many of these students to participate in a St Joseph High School mission for Habitat, the volunteers completed their tasks at hand with vigor and ease.
Said St Joe’s Coordinator of Student Service Melissa Stunkel, “I was constantly amazed how hard the students worked for others in the community. They truly exemplified how it is both a responsibility and privilege to serve those in need.”
Our thanks go to Emily and her fellow students for both their time and dedication.
