3/22/2012 - U.S. AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo. -- Academy cadets are giving up their Spring Break to build homes for those in need of decent, affordable housing March 26-30 at locations across the central United States.

Nearly 60 cadets are volunteering their time to build homes with Habitat for Humanity in Houston, Santa Fe and Taos, N.M., Oklahoma City, Okla., Kansas City, Mo., and Sheridan, Wyo.

Cadets volunteered more than 32,000 hours of their time last school year helping in communities across the nation. They helped with everything from soup kitchens and toy drives, to flood relief and building homes.


NOTE: Photos and video with interviews will be shot at the Houston site and made available to any media who requests it. Telephone interviews with cadets on the site can be arranged for March 27-28. Anyone interested in any of these products or opportunities can e-mail raymond.hoy@usafa.af.mil.
