Nearly 40 students from three colleges across the country are giving up their spring break vacations this month to volunteer for Central Oklahoma Habitat for Humanity as part of Collegiate Challenge, Habitat's national college spring break program.

Students spend their time helping build houses and performing critical home repairs to benefit working, low-income families.

Students from Central College in Pella, Iowa, the University of Iowa and the U.S. Air Force Academy are working in Central Oklahoma Habitat neighborhoods, including Las Rosas, SE 25 and Byers Avenue, and Hope Crossing, NE 83 and Kelley Avenue. The Oklahoma City Thunder and the Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum have donated tickets for their students during their visits.
