It was a case of life imitating art for cast members of 90210 last Saturday, March 14, when they banded together for a Habitat For Humanity building project.
Cast members Shenae Grimes, Adam Gregory, Tristan Wilds, Dustin Milligan and Jessica Stroup helped the charity build its 100th house in Pacoima, California, and met with families from the community and their fans.
“Most people that live in America today are very blessed with a roof over their heads and a place to call home,” said cast member Rob Estes. “However, there are some families that for various circumstances need some help. Habitat for Humanity is a great organization that works with those families in need to help them get into a home, and teaches them skills to succeed economically. The Habitat build on March 14th [was] a great opportunity to get involved as a community, and teach young people the importance of caring for others and giving back.”
The build will be followed by an episode of 90210 to air on April 14, in which characters of the show spend their Spring Break volunteering for the organization.
Habitat for Humanity is especially pleased with reaching the 100th house milestone: “This achievement belongs to the commitment of thousands of volunteers, and countless supporters and donors over the last several years,” said Jack Shine, Habitat board chairman. “This includes many young people from our communities. We’ve made great progress, but there’s so much more to do.”
