Build Days offer a unique opportunity to build staff or group morale through team work and giving back. Everyone works together to complete a number of projects that are challenging, fun, and give a sense of personal pride. Teams of 12-16 people work on all aspects of the build from electrical, to painting to landscaping, depending on the progress of the build. No matter their skill level, we always have jobs so that everyone is able to contribute.
All construction materials and gear are provided including: hard hats, steel toed boots, tools, rain gear, painting smocks, tools, etc. Shifts are 8:30 am - 4pm and includes coffee, snacks, a catered lunch, t-shirts and a team photo. Participation is a minimum donation of $5000 for corporate groups, with reduced donation requirements for associations, schools, non-profits and churches.
We rely on volunteer support to complete all our Habitat for Humanity homes on time and within budget. By sponsoring a Build Day, not only do partner families get in their homes faster, 100% of all donations are directly invested into the build for things such as: skilled labour, fees, and supplies necessary for completion.
