Baylor faculty, staff and students will join representatives from Waco Habitat for Humanity at 1 p.m. Saturday, April 28, as they dedicate the Baylor Habitat for Humanity House located at 1008 Church Ave. in Waco.

The $32,000 project of Baylor's Habitat for Humanity chapter -- the oldest collegiate chapter in the United States -- was funded by contributions from students, faculty and staff. Construction on the home, the 61st Habitat House to be built in Waco, began March 24.

Participants in Saturday's dedication will include Howard Williams, Baylor's director of church relations and president of the Waco Habitat board of directors; Ahmed Al-Hafidh, student president of the Baylor Habitat chapter; John Alexander, executive director of Waco Habitat for Humanity; and the new homeowners, Eddie and Anja Gayle, along with their 2-year-old daughter, Seraphina.
