Habitat for Humanity New York City First Unity Build, June 12
Due to popular demand, and in honor of Gay Pride Month, Habitat for Humanity – New York City will host its first annual Unity Build on Friday, June 12, 8:30 am to 4:30 pm at the nonprofit’s South Bronx construction site.
Volunteers from the LGBT community are invited to help build affordable Habitat-NYC homes for families in need. No construction experience is necessary, but participants must be 16 or older and pre-registered. Lunch, tools and training will be provided.
Unity Build participants are asked to raise a minimum of minimum of $250, which helps finance the construction of the homes. Habitat-NYC provides an online fundraising tool and support that makes is easy for individuals to reach their goals.
“Habitat-NYC celebrates the great diversity of New York City, and we are pleased to bring members of the LGBT community together to build affordable, eco-friendly and healthy homes for hardworking New York families,” said Josh Lockwood, Executive Director of Habitat-NYC.
Working on a Habitat-NYC Unity Build construction site is a great way to learn new skills, network, make new friends and work alongside people skilled in construction and some of the families who will own these homes.
To ensure site safety, Habitat-NYC can accommodate only 20 volunteers on site. To learn more about Unity Build, or to register, please go to Habitat NYC, click on Events and follow the links to Unity Build, or contact James Andrews at firstname.lastname@example.org or 212-991-4000 x. 330.
