Build CommUNITY Event

Habitat for Humanity Detroit, in partnership with Central Detroit Christian, is hosting the inaugural Build CommUNITY event on June 8, 2019, aiming to recruit over 500 volunteers to build awareness and raise funds to support its mission to build communities and hope in the neighborhoods of Detroit. This event will mobilize volunteers through a variety of projects to serve families, improve neighborhoods, and build community.

Through this one-day event, Habitat Detroit will complete repairs that make homes safer and energy efficient; repair porches and build ramps, paint murals, beautify parks and playgrounds, clean alleys, and do other works that improve the neighborhood. A community celebration will cap off the day, bringing volunteers, sponsors, and neighbors together for a block party to celebrate people coming together for a common cause – commUNITY.

Habitat Detroit is looking for partners to invest in these projects and experience that “Habitat” feeling – working side by side with others, regardless of race, class or creeds, who understand we must all work together to rebuild Detroit neighborhoods.
