If your business, church, service or social group would like to choose Habitat for Humanity for a charitable project, whether

  1. volunteering for an entire build or for any Saturday,
  2. donating to the cost of construction, or
  3. making Habitat a prayer offering from your congregation

please contact Jim Dooley at jimadooley@gmail.com or call (618)529-3878.


Weekend Sponsors can be any business, religious, service or social group... even a group of friends... that is willing to donate their sweat for a Saturday workday. You may sponsor any number of weekends you desire. Weekend sponsorship helps us in planning for the right number of team leaders and for particular activities for a given weekend.
