Charlotte, NC - The women's basketball program worked with Habitat for Humanity on a home last Friday, April 27. Habitat for Humanity is an international organization that helps build decent, affordable homes around the world for low-income families.
The 49ers women's basketball players and coaching staff performed several duties last Friday. They dug holes to redo the foundation for a deck. They put up a couple of structures with allowed volunteers easy access to the roof. They pulled off shingles and tar paper off one side of the roof. Then, they put new tar paper on the side of the roof that they had pulled the old tar paper off.
The 49ers women's basketball team's working with Habitat for Humanity is just one example of the numerous community service projects that Charlotte 49ers student-athletes perform. Charlotte 49ers student-athletes have helped at youth sports clinics, read to elementary school children, visited the Levine Children's Hospital and participated in the Toys for Tots program and Red Cross Blood Drives.
