Samford University students, faculty and staff will help build a Habitat for Humanity house in Wylam Saturday, Dec. 5.  The volunteers will work on the project, located in the Wylam Oaks section,  from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m.


Construction will start on the new house on Michigan Avenue with a groundbreaking Thursday, Dec. 3.  When completed, it will provide a home for Tiffani Whitehead and her three children.


Samford has supported the Habitat for Humanity program for a number of years through contributions and volunteer efforts.  Founded by the late Millard Fuller in 1976, the international nonprofit program provides decent, affordable housing for people in need.
