2010 Blitz Build Begins Today
SPOKANE, Wash. - Habitat-Spokane's annual Blitz Build kicked off today at 8am, and 50 volunteers from Sterling Savings Bank building side-by-side with future Habitat homeowners.
Habitat-Spokane will build an ADA compliant duplex from the foundation up in partnership with the Cooley and Turner families. Furthermore, Habitat-Spokane will also complete an additional duplex, and a five-plex. With the completion of these nine homes, Habitat-Spokane will have built 205 Habitat homes in Spokane County since 1987.
"Though Habitat for Humanity builds year-round, the Blitz Build is an accelerated building schedule that brings the community together," said Michone Preston, Executive Director for Habitat for Humanity-Spokane. "The Blitz Build is a fun way for the community to make a difference that will last for generations."
Over 25 days, several hundred skilled and unskilled volunteers, sponsor groups, and Habitat families work together to build decent, affordable homes in our community. The Blitz Build concludes June 25th with a home dedication celebration at 5:30 p.m.
