This year, Hockaday and St. Mark’s are celebrating their 10th anniversary of building houses in West Dallas with Habitat for Humanity. This year, the house is being built for Martha Davila. Davila came to Dallas from Mexico in 1980 and has been looking forward to having her own space ever since. The house  has three bedrooms, living room, kitchen and two complete bathrooms. Volunteers started to build the house the week after Winter Break and it is scheduled to end sometime in March.

This year, the seniors have decided to start a new drive in which they will donate many items to the students at W.T.

White emailed her, hoping to have some sort of collaboration with Hockaday. The drive will start on Feb. 8.
