Habitat for Humanity Interfaith Build

One of the strategies in the “Congregational Housing Action Guide” is for local faith congregations to partner with Habitat for Humanity in the construction of affordable housing units. In May, members of Edmonton faith communities are invited to move from words to action to provide affordable housing for local families. Habitat for Humanity is hosting Edmonton’s first ever Interfaith Build. This initiative will occur at the Anderson Gardens build site in NE Edmonton. The Interfaith Build will begin May 2nd and conclude on May 31st. Five volunteers per day will be recruited from the various faith communities to help us with various tasks. The recruitment will occur through the faith communities themselves. The Interfaith Build volunteers will be working alongside other volunteers as this project accommodates a large number of people daily. Shifts are Tuesdays to Saturdays from 8:30 – 4 pm, except for May 19th, as it is the long weekend. Volunteers are welcome to sign up for as many or few shifts as they like. More information is included on the attachments.
