Morris Habitat for Humanity and the Blitz Home Builders* team* will be leading the 9-day Blitz Build event.
A Blitz Build is a concentrated effort to build a house during a radically shortened timeline. The Mine Hill project includes 4 affordable homes – 3 are new construction, one is existing but needs some light rehab work. The Blitz Build event is focused on the 3 new homes.
The Blitz will take place from June 6-16, 2018. The build will begin with a ceremonial groundbreaking on June 6, 2018 and will continue for 9 work days. Sunday the 10th will be a rest day. The event will conclude with a dedication of the homes on Saturday, June 16.
We will be building at 52-58 Randall Ave in Mine Hill, the future home of the Giacchino/Freudenberg, Munoz, Peres and Pappa/Saenz families.
Four more families will become homeowners faster and will start their journey towards a brighter future!
It is going to be awe inspiring! It will be incredible to see the walls and roof framing put together within the first few hours of a build. It is magical to see so many people working together on a house at the same time. It is gratifying to look back at the end of the week and see how much has changed in so little time.
For Sponsors, it’s a once in a lifetime team build experience for your employees. You will also benefit from the increased media coverage, social media and connection with the Morris Habitat

*The Blitz Home Builders, BHB, are a traveling group of experienced construction volunteers with various skill levels. BHB was started by a few Honeywell employees who wanted to continue working with Habitat after their annual event ended. They will be bringing about 75 volunteers to the Morris Habitat Blitz Build event.
Thank you for helping build these homes!
