Builders’ Blitz

This sounds very cool –

Professional builders in Raleigh and Greensboro, N.C.have created a way to help Habitat affiliates like ours build more homes with low-income families.It is called a “Builders Blitz”. The program was very successful in those cities, bringing local builders together to collaborate in building 60 homes in three years. It has gained such momentum that Habitat International is coordinating a national effort to build 1,000 homes across America with a nation-wide Builders Blitz the week of June 5-9, 2006.These homes will be in addition to the usual Habitat homes built by volunteer groups.We want to be part of it locally to add to the homes we are already building.

More information can be found at Charlottesville’s Habitat site, their quarterly (pdf) newsletter here and Habitat’s site.
