We are thrilled that Anna Ziegler was recognized on the Chamber of Commerce's 20 Under 40 list! Anna has volunteered with our Women Build chapter for 8 years and has been chair of Women Build for 3 years. Her leadership and commitment has been invaluable to Habitat and our partner families.

25th Collegiate House Updates
Our IWU Collegiate Chapter is hosting a table on the quad for Illinois Wesleyan's 100th Homecoming this Saturday. Stop by to show your Titan pride and support our Wesleyan students! Next Saturday for Illinois State's Homecoming Parade, our ISU Collegiate Chapter will be walking behind our ReStore truck. For all the Redbirds out there, be sure to cheer extra loudly for our Habitat students!
If you can't make it to either homecoming, but would like to contribute to the 25th Collegiate House, future home of the Yetimbi/Itukola Family, click here.
It's that time of the year again! Trick or Treat for Change, the Collegiate Chapter's biggest annual fundraiser, is coming again this Halloween! Help us spread the word.
We'd like to send a big thank you to State Farm for awarding our Collegiate Chapter a matching grant of $10,000. This will help the students significantly as they work to raise $40,000 this school year! For more details, read the full article here.
