Teton Habitat launches Winter Warrior Challenge
[Jackson, WY] [December, 19th 2017]—Habitat for Humanity of the Greater Teton Area (Teton Habitat) is challenging community members to participate in our Winter Warrior Challenge. Teton Habitat is launching the volunteering competition on January 1st. The competition will run until March 31st. Each hour spent volunteering earns participants a point in the challenge. The three volunteers with the highest number of points on April 1st receive prizes for first, second and third place. The prizes include a summer get-a-way, concert tickets, free guided river trips, gift cards and more!
Habitat builds year round and is in need of support during the winter months the most. It is critical to continue to have volunteers active on the site in order to hit our project deadline. The Winter Warrior Challenge aims to increase volunteer participation during the chilly months. “If it’s not too cold to ski, it’s not too cold to build with Habitat,” says Outreach Coordinator, Elizabeth Ferguson. Individuals and groups are invited to participate in the Winter Warrior Challenge.
Volunteers are welcome to build with Teton Habitat at The Grove, 845 W. Snow King Ave, any Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday from 9-4:30 PM. Interested volunteers should sign up online at www.tetonhabitat.org/get-involved. Please make sure you always dress appropriately when you come to volunteer with Habitat, especially during the winter months.
About Habitat for Humanity of the Greater Teton Area
Habitat builds homes in partnership with hardworking families in the Greater Teton Area and helps build stronger families and neighborhoods through homeowner education and by partnering with donors and volunteers to construct attractive, affordable homes. Homes are sold at no profit to pre-selected partner families and individuals with an interest-free loan to ensure affordable monthly payments. Homeowners are required to contribute at least 500 hours of “sweat equity”, save for closing costs, and take a series of homeowner education classes in order to purchase the home. Habitat also runs the Habitat for Humanity ReStore, which sells donated building supplies, home furnishings and appliances to help fund Habitat’s program.

Building strength, stability, and self-reliance!
