Vineland High School Students Volunteer With Habitat for Humanity

Posted:
Students from Vineland High School's RAFT Program (Resources Aligned for Teens) volunteered with Habitat for Humanity of Cumberland County last Saturday, December 13th.
RAFT is a New Jersey Department of Children & Families initiative in collaboration with the Vineland Board of Education, and Inspira Health Network in Vineland. It is a youth-based school services program, staffed by healthcare professionals from the Inspira Health Network.
Brenda Smaniotto, RAFT director, said "the students became interested in getting involved after hearing a presentation from Cumberland County's Habitat for Humanity Executive Director, Robert Scarpa. He spoke to the students in RAFT's afterschool Girl's Group led by Dolores Turse, about the benefits of volunteering in one's community and the satisfaction that comes from helping others."
