UF Students "Design" New Life For Migrant Family
Its a cold night to spend in a drafty trailer...but a migrant farm family facing just that is getting a little help from some new friends. Now those new friends are asking for a little help as well.
Design students from the University of Florida's School of Architecture found the trailer, located in Gainesville, to be in pretty bad shape, and set out to do what they can to fix it. They are repairing an exterior wall, building a deck, fixing flooring, windows, and cabinets. They are even taking out an interior wall and building modular beds that can be folded away.
The project is voluntary, and the money for supplies comes from donations. Here is a link to their fundraising website: https://rally.org/f/iFtFO0bajEN#
