Habitat for Humanity Build: May 7

Friday, April 14th, 2017

Join the Caring and Social Action Committee for a Habitat for Humanity Build on Sunday morning, May 7.

Registration is on a first-come, first-serve basis and there are a limited number of spots, so sign up early by contacting Penny Shemtob at We will keep a waiting list and may be able to set up a second build if we have enough interest.

This is a family build, so all teens must come with at least one parent and other family members over the age of 16. The minimum age to participate is 7th grade or age 13. If your child is 12 and in 7th grade, that is okay.

We are asking for a donation of between $25.00 to $50.00 in order to purchase something for the home once it is completed (a table, couch, etc…).
