Do you have kids in your life who aren't old enough to volunteer on-site, but would like to get involved and give back to their community? Below is a list of ideas for ways to get involved.

Service Projects:

  • Recipe Scrapbook (presented to families upon move-in)
  • Build birdhouses, little free libraries, picnic tables, planter boxes, etc. at home
  • 2x4 party! (Write messages for families on lumber that will be used in their homes)

Fundraisers:

Other ideas:

Mission Statement

Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, community, and hope. We build strength, stability, and self-reliance through shelter.

Description

Through volunteer labor and tax-deductible donations of money and materials, Habitat builds and rehabilitates simple, decent homes with the help of the homeowner. Habitat houses are sold to families at no profit, financed with affordable, no-interest loans. The homeowners’ monthly mortgage payments are recycled into a revolving Fund for Humanity that is used to build more houses.
