Women's basketball to help Habitat for Humanity



GAINESVILLE - Members of the women's basketball team and coaching staff will participate in a home-building project for Habitat for Humanity this Saturday (Aug. 25).

The team will be volunteering on a project run throgh a branch of Habitat called "Women Build.'' The team will assist with the building of two houses in the Celebration Oaks subdivision.

Ground was broken for the house on August 11 and women throughout the Gainesville community have committed their Saturdays to work on the project.  Construction will continue on Saturdays through September, and possibly into October, until the house is complete.

“The city of Gainesville provides incredible support to the Florida Women’s Basketball team and we feel this is one way to give back,''  new head coach Amanda Butler said
