Students Build for the Homeless Community!
While most kids are home enjoying the beginning of their summer vacations, some students are using their special skills to impact the lives of others by building wooden structures for the homeless.
Twenty-four students and teachers at Seminole Education Center are donating their time as part of a class assignment to build the shelters.
"The kids came to us at the end of the school year and wanted to complete a project they've been working on all year," said Matt Fischer, principal of Seminole Vocational Education Center.
The school project will involve building solar powered casitas -- makeshift housing for the homeless. The Pinellas County school district approved the project at the end of the school year, but several students wanted to get an early start on the project.
