Partnering with Habitat makes STRONG BUSINESS SENSE
Builds Culture, Consumers and Connections

Whether this is your first company volunteer event, or you’re seasoned pros, Habitat provides a fun, easy and engaging experience. We’re in the business of building safe, affordable housing, and would love to work with you. Local employers will bring their staff teams to the build site throughout the build, which is a great chance to learn more about West Southern Pines and the opportunity provided through Habitat for Humanity for affordable homeownership.

Blueprint Virtual Breakfast

West Southern Pines Build

Katrina Drakeford is a hard working mother raising her son, Aaron, and her daughter, Angelica. Katrina has faced many challenges but her determination to create a better future for her family has inspired her to invest over 300 hours of “sweat equity” on the build site and in the ReStore. She will be buying her home at 1597 W. Pennsyvania Ext. in West Southern Pines with a guaranteed affordable mortgage. Katrina’s home will be featured as our Business Build Home – a special home built annually by our many local businesses to show their support for our community.

CEO Build Day

Build Beside Area Leaders
Friday, October, 16th at 8:00 am

The first day of construction on this year’s home will take place on Friday, October 16th from 8am-1pm with our “CEO Build Day!” On this day, our business leaders will trade in their suits, ties and heels for hardhats, tool belts and work gloves. We will begin the day with only a floor system but hope to raise all of the walls and allow our fantastic local business leaders the chance to actively engage in our work and spend time together outside the usual board room. All following build days can be secured by workplace teams or individuals eager to put their skills to work. No prior build experience is needed, as our construction team is gifted at helping you find your niche for the day!

key to a positive company CULTURE
Employees want to work for a company that gives back to the community. Habitat build-days create a team building experience with purpose. A positive workplace equals lower turnover.

CONSUMERS buy with a purpose
Millennials are likely to buy products that support a cause. More brands are choosing the build brand loyalty by giving back. Recent studies show that people of all ages are receptive to companies that support a cause. Amazon’s Smile program lets customers support a favorite charity every time they shop, at no cost to them.
