Description

Article on Marquette University High School's involvement in reconstructing a house in Merrill Park and outreach activities including tutoring, painting homes of the needy, offering spring cleaning services. The main focus of the article is the Partners Project, an effort whereby the school helps the Merrill Park Neighborhood Association revitalize the area’s housing stock using student, parent, and alumni volunteers. The goal was to increase home ownership. MUHS secured more than $83,000 in cash, donated labor, and materials and also established a fund to rehabilitate more homes in the area.
