Ogeechee Tech Recruiting Team
for Habitat Build-a-Thon

Everyone’s been in a walk-a-thon, bike-a-thon, dance-a-thon or some variation. But there's never been a "thon" like this! In October, Habitat will hold an event that will be a first – an event where the fundraising teams will actually get to put their money to work, starting construction on two new Habitat houses! Community teams and student teams will sign up to raise money and start construction on a new Habitat for Humanity home.  Community Teams may be individuals or families, or represent businesses, churches or civic groups.  Student Teams may be made up of student organizations or informal groups of students from Georgia Southern University, Ogeechee Technical College, local high schools or church youth groups. 

Habitat for Humanity

Through volunteer labor and donations of money and materials, Habitat builds and rehabilitates simple, decent houses with the help of the homeowner (partner) families. Habitat houses are sold to partner families at no profit and financed with affordable loans.  Habitat is not a giveaway program. In addition to a down payment and the monthly mortgage payments, homeowners invest hundreds of hours of their own labor into building their Habitat house and the houses of others.
