How does Veterans Build work?
Volunteering on the Work Sites.
During this week-long event, Veterans Build participants (individuals and teams of volunteers) will schedule one full day of work at a designated home site to repair, re-construct or rejuvenate the home exterior of a limited-income veteran homeowner in Hillsborough County. This work may include pressure washing, scraping, caulking, painting, minor soffit/fascia repair, yard clean-up, additional landscaping, porch repairs and accessible ramps.
NO EXPERIENCE IS NECESSARY. All tools and hard hats are provided. Volunteers work under the supervision of construction professionals.
Veterans Initiative Fundraising.
In addition to actively working at the home sites, Veterans Build participants are required to engage in fundraising. Every dollar raised will benefit our Veterans Initiative program so we can continue to serve local veterans with affordable housing solutions all year long.
- Individual fundraising requirement to participate: $600
- Team fundraising requirement to participate: $6,000
Habitat Hillsborough Veterans Build participants will be invited to attend the Veterans Build Kickoff event. At the Kickoff event, volunteers will learn more about Habitat for Humanity and its ongoing Veterans Initiative while enjoying refreshments. They will also pick up materials designed to aid them in their fundraising efforts and distribute volunteer hardhats, commemorative t-shirts.
