The launch of the Blitz Build Campaign, a yearly accelerated construction event where ten new homes will be built in two weeks.
Friday, February 7, Habitat for Humanity of Greater Miami launches its yearly accelerated construction project Blitz Build 2014 presented by Baptist Health South Florida. Between February 7th and the 22nd, more than 1500 volunteers will work alongside Habitat partner families and sponsors in completing ten new Habitat homes.
The ten new homes are the second phase of Habitatâ€™s newest South Miami-Dade community, Habitat Landings, a 45 home community slated to be completed by the end of 2015.
â€œBlitz brings sponsors, volunteers and our partner families in a wonderful way,â€ states Mario Artecona, CEO of Habitat for Humanity of Greater Miami. â€œTo see so many people from so many walks of life working in tandem to help a family is very inspiring. It is our favorite project of the year. The energy is palpable. â€
Blitz Build is made possible through the generous support of corporate and institutional donors who sponsor individual homes. This yearâ€™s sponsors include: Anthony R. Abraham Foundation, Assurant, Baptist Hospital South Florida, EverBank, Faith House, The Ortega Foundation, Publix Supermarket Charities and WSVN Channel 7 as well as Co-Sponsors Bank of America, G4S Secure Solutions (USA), Perry Ellis and Presbyterian Churches of America.
Blitz Build 2013 will conclude on February 22nd with a dedication ceremony celebrating the partner families who will be purchasing and residing in the recently completed homes.
Volunteer opportunities are always available with Habitat for Humanity of Greater Miami. No construction experience needed, just a willingness to help families in need of a decent, affordable place to live. Volunteers will be served breakfast and lunch and will be given t-shirts and mementoes of their participation.Thank you for using Soul Of Miami!
