We are postponing the Habitat Frame Up event scheduled for August 20 and will be scheduling a new date soon so that more people can attend. Stay tuned!
A unique volunteer opportunity for the Madison Jewish community to build the frame of an entire Habitat home together over one day.
Volunteers will learn about Habitat for Humanity, hear from a future Habitat homeowner, and swing a hammer. No construction experience is necessary and Habitat will provide all tools, equipment, and training. The minimum age to volunteer is 14 years old. Everyone who volunteers is required to be fully vaccinated and wear a mask when indoors or in the restrooms.
Habitat for Humanity of Dane County was awarded a Jewish Federation of Madison Community Grant through the Cheryl Rosen Weston (CRW) Fund of $10,000 to sponsor this Habitat Frame Up event open to volunteers from throughout the Jewish community. Spend an afternoon constructing walls for an entire Habitat home - one of over 300 homes this organization has built for local families over 30 years.
