On Feb. 1, the Gloucester County Institute of Technology’s (GCIT) National Honor Society for Dance Arts will be hosting two performances, using dance to give back to Gloucester County Habitat for Humanity (GCHFH). This will be the third year GCIT National Honor Society for Dance Arts has benefited GCHFH. In 2019, the performances raised over $3,200 for GCHFH.
“I Was Here; Dancing For Humanity” is dedicated in honor of Katharine Campbell, GCIT Class of 2015. She was a remarkable young woman who was selfless and an asset to the GCIT Dance Program, along with her local community. After graduating from GCIT, Katharine went on to further her education at St. Joseph’s University. In college, she was highly involved with her community and volunteered for Collegiate Challenge, a student organization at Saint Joseph’s University that works with Habitat for Humanity Affiliates throughout the country. Even though Katharine is no longer here, her kind and giving spirit will always be with us.
All proceeds from the event will go directly to Gloucester County Habitat for Humanity.
“GCIT National Honor Society for Dance Arts program is a perfect example of the partnerships we love to build here in Gloucester County. Through the memory of Katharine, our young adults are able to support GCHFH’s mission of giving a hand up to our community members.” Tony Isabella, executive director of GCHFH.
