The Home Builders Foundation
is currently recruiting skilled Project Captains, crews, volunteers and applicants for its 2017 Blitz Build, taking place on August 24th, 25th and 26th , 2017.
What: The Blitz Build
is an annual event that brings together contractors, remodels and volunteers to build about 15 (possibly more!) ramps for individuals needing access to their homes. Even though the HBF builds ramps year-round, during the Blitz Build event they are able to build so many in just 3 days by mobilizing more than 200 volunteers to complete the work.
Applicants: If you or someone you know is in need of a ramp, please fill have them fill out the HBF’s application for assistance
and return it to the HBF. Note: Any ramp applications received now through June 2017 will be considered for the Blitz Build. Projects need to meet the requisite qualifications and will be reviewed on a first-come, first-saved basis of the completed application.
Project Captains, Crews & Volunteers: The HBF fundraises every dollar for our projects so that we can provide modifications to our recipients at no cost to them. Similar to years past, the HBF is requiring each Blitz Build crew to make a donation of $250 to participate in the Blitz Build. The crew can choose to make a donation as a company/ council or as individuals; the HBF will even create an online fundraising page for your group to bring attention to the good you’re doing! We will be prioritizing and matching crews on a first-come, first-served basis as well as their donation commitment, as we continue to identify projects for the event.
