How did we do it?
Only with your help! Your support ensured that the Cape’s second Builders Blitz was a true community effort and a stunning success - thank you!
As part of an extraordinary common purpose, you shared your skills and resources, helped us to raise funds or secure donated goods/services to support the dreams of a young family in need of owning a safe, decent and affordable home.
9/28/2015: The Homebuilders Blitz is complete - One Home for One Family in One Week is officially accomplished, after a year of planning and a week of carefully choreographed hard work! The family who will shortly be moving into their new home, with an affordable mortgage, have worked hard as well by contributing the required 500 hours of sweat equity that is a requirement of all Habitat for Humanity homeowners. We applaud them, as well as all of the vendors, volunteers, steering committee and staff who made Blitz Build 2015 come to fruition!!
9/25/2015: We are on Day 5 and the Blitz Build house is nearing completion - landscaping, interior appliance installation, final inspections and touch ups are wrapping up today and tomorrow. The Dedication, and official end of the Blitz Build, is tomorrow - Saturday the 26th, at 3pm - all are welcome to join in welcoming the Vasquez family to their new home (there is a shuttle from the Exit 10 Park & Ride to the Dedication ceremony - 2:15 to 2:55 - parking onsite is limited). Thank you to the contractors, volunteers, Steering Committee and agencies who made this possible!
9/24/2015: Moving right along, house number is up!!
