Fifth Anniversary Celebration Project
Building one house for each year of success!
The Fuller Center commemorated its fifth anniversary by rolling up its sleeves and doing what it does best: putting your donations to good use and helping to lift people out of poverty by working with them to build safe, decent, affordable housing.
Between March 15 and 27, 2010, we returned to Louisiana, where our initial effort began in 2005 following Hurricane Katrina. University of Idaho students, an experienced green-build team from California, Fuller Center RV builders and volunteers from across the U.S. helped us construct five houses with our three covenant partners in Louisiana.
