Adopt - A - Day: A Corporate Volunteer Team Building Experience

An Adopt-A-Day is an opportunity for employees to come together to help build permanent, affordable housing for low-income families, all while participating in an enriching team-building experience!

By donating $2,500 (based on one group of 10 volunteers for all-day -- talk to us about scaling up), you will support Habitat’s partner families by covering the cost of building materials for your workday. Each group may schedule their volunteer experience on any available Thursday, Friday, or Saturday.

For more information on Adopt-A-Days, download our flyer here.

Many businesses are now seeing the short- and long-term benefits of bringing employees outside the walls of the office, and into the volunteer space.

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 homes, communities, and hope and would love to work with you!

Research has shown that employees prefer to work for companies invested in charitable causes, and volunteering is a terrific way to facilitate that need at a relatively low cost to you. It is especially important to the Millennial generation, born approximately 1980-2000, which is the second-largest outside of the Baby Boomers and is now entering the workforce in droves.
