The Hopkinton High School "Habitat for Humanity" club participated in "Operation Playhouse" and worked hard to build a playhouse for the Child of a Veteran. A Disney theme was used in the design.

"Operation Playhouse is a unique program that benefits local veterans and military families and their children. Children of veterans are often left with a one-parent household and have to cope with feelings of loss and uncertainty. The playhouses provide a special place for family members to bond, play, dream, and think. It is a “home” of their own."
