Building on Faith
Thank YOU for a very successful event!
Wednesday, September 25th, 5pm - 8pm
500 Block of Bertrand Street
Manhattan Area Habitat for Humanity and Thrivent are partnering with local churches for a Building on Faith event in September 2019.
People of faith will come together to beautify the block around our recently completed Habitat Home #28 at 512 Bertrand, Manhattan. Exterior work such as spreading grass seed, raking, trimming branches, cleaning gutters and even some painting will brighten up this street after kind neighbors patiently allowed months of construction trucks and hundreds of volunteers to descend on their quiet neighborhood.
Our goal is to have 100 church members and other volunteers attend this event and make a statement to our community about the importance of home ownership at all economic levels.

Thrivent and Habitat for Humanity are partnering to provide Building on Faith events around the country. These community improvement projects are designed to make an immediate impact on local housing and community needs
Building on Faith is for you, your churches and local faith communities to participate in a community improvement project that addresses housing needs, raises awareness of the need for affordable housing, and provides an engaging volunteer experience
Volunteers will participate in different types of projects across the country, including: homebuilding, rehab or repair projects, park and playground cleanup, blessings of homes, landscaping, volunteering at a Habitat ReStore, and more. Locally we will have an event in September (Date/Time/Location TBD)
