Teton Habitat launches Winter Warrior Challenge

Habitat for Humanity of the Greater Teton Area (Teton Habitat) is challenging community members to participate in our 2nd Annual Winter Warrior Challenge. Teton Habitat is launching the volunteering competition on January 8th. 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 an evening stay and a round of golf for two at Big Sky Resort, a dinner for two at any Fine Dining Restaurant, and a $100.00 gift certificate to Jackson Hole Buffalo Meat Company.

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. “Lending a hand at the jobsite during the winter is super educational and very rewarding.” says Outreach Coordinator, Elizabeth Ferguson. “Volunteers have the opportunity to work alongside our construction team and homeowners.” 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.tetonhabita.org/get-involved. Please make sure you always dress appropriately when you come to volunteer with Habitat, especially during the winter months. This winter, volunteer tasks include, but are not limited to, interior finishes, flooring, installing cabinets and framing.

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.

For more information, please call 307-734-0828, visit the Habitat for Humanity ReStore, or visit us on the web at www.tetonhabitat.org.

Building strength, stability, and self-reliance!
