World Habitat Day


"More than 30 years ago, the United Nations General Assembly took an important step in promoting the idea that everyone deserves a decent place to live by declaring that the first Monday in October would be World Habitat Day. Habitat for Humanity asks everyone to join together as one global network in communicating the message that every one of us deserves the opportunity for a better future, and that a decent place to live can remove barriers to opportunity, health and success that might have been part of a family's life for years, and in many cases for generations".

Today, thousands of schools across America - from all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico - participate every October". Visit WalkBiketoScool.com for more information.
