Thanks to Clemson students, th ere are about 100 people now living in affordable housing. Clemson’s campus chapter of Habitat for Humanity completed its 20th house since 1997 on Bowman Field during Homecoming Weekend. Around 400 students combined their efforts to provide a home for a local family. Another hundred students completed work on the house once it was moved to its location.
In addition to the houses built on Bowman, the group has built five additional houses as part of a “blitz build” in the winter of 2001, as well as one built for the Martin Luther King Jr. celebration and three with local high school students.
