Marquette High Donates Land to Habitat for Humanity, Pledges Student Involvement

MICHIGAN CITY, Ind. — Marquette Catholic High School announced on Friday that as part of the largest community service project in the school’s history, they have donated a parcel of land located at the corner of Ohio and 9th Streets in Michigan City to the LaPorte County Habitat for Humanity to provide housing for a local family.

The organization is expected to complete the construction on the former Flanigan Garage site by next spring.

Habitat for Humanity is a non-profit organization that assists qualifying families with housing in their mission for “a world where everyone has a decent place to live.”

The LaPorte County Habitat for Humanity has built 52 homes for families in Michigan City, LaPorte, and Kingsbury since 1986.

“Community service is at the heart of our mission at Marquette Catholic. We are committed to improving the lives of those in our local communities, and this partnership will enable us to make a positive impact in our immediate neighborhood,” stated Marquette president James White in a press release.
