UF PRSSA’s Advocacy/Community Service Committee has kicked off the spring season by working with Alachua Habitat for Humanity’s campaign to celebrate volunteers, families and donors contributing to building Habitat’s 125th house. The campaign also emphasizes the importance of donations in building the 126th house by highlighting specific people Alachua Habitat has helped. The newsletter written by UF PRSSA Advocacy Committee member Lana Nasser has been published by Alachua Habitat and will be sent to 5,600 donors on Habitat’s listserv.
Alachua Habitat also published a flier created by UF PRSSA Advocacy Committee member Rachael Reh. In addition to helping Alachua Habitat for Humanity with its ongoing efforts to assist families in need, the UF PRSSA Advocacy Committee members are able to add these published works to their professional portfolios that will assist them in obtaining internships and jobs in the near future.
Members of this UF PRSSA committee have also been published in the previous semester through Alachua Habitat in a former campaign. These members include Marcus Holton, Rebecca Moonitz and Grace-Ann Kerkvliet. Having built a long-term relationship with a philanthropic organization like Alachua Habitat, our student members are able to maximize their ability to give back to the community and document their achievements throughout their college experience.
