Habitat for Humanity Build Day

8.30am-4pm
Muir Ridge Development, 401 Heron Lane, Martinez, CA
Please click here for more information and to register!

It is finally officially underway! No more permit issues or cancellations!! Join us as we help Habitat for Humanity East Bay / Silicon Valley build a home for our local community.

We will be helping with the Muir Ridge development site on Heron Lane in Martinez. It is a 20 home development which began construction on November 20th. This is a great opportunity to see what goes into the building of a home and what the lines on a plan actually become in the field and at the same time make the dream of home ownership possible for a local family.

Also, the hours worked do count toward IDP credit for those working toward their license. No experience is needed and this is open to all so tell your friends, coworkers, and family to join you!

And since this is also occurring on Valentine’s Day, bring your significant other for a great couples build.
