Habitat Builders’ Challenge Media Blitz!

builders challenge









The Habitat Builders’ Challenge took place July 17-19 at our Point Breeze work site, with local construction companies stepping forward to volunteer their services and help us frame six homes in just three days. For Habitat Philadelphia, this equals a savings of over $65,000 for our budget and will put us ahead of our production schedule by over four months. Everyone was a winner – especially our partner families, who move closer to their dreams of homeownership thanks to the efforts of our volunteer construction experts. We couldn’t be more grateful for the support of our participants: J.J. White, Dale Corporation and the Metro Region Council of Carpenters, Equinox Construction, Paiz Construction and St. John’s Presbyterian Church.

Check our our YouTube channel for a time-lapse video of the houses going up!

Our “urban barn-raising” experiment was the talk of the town, as this inspiring story was featured everywhere you looked on television, in print, on the radio, and all over social media. Below is a guide to the media blitz. We’re already planning bigger things for next year, so be on the look-out!
