Habitat for Humanity Build Day

December 3, 2022 at 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

Habitat for Humanity builds strength, security and self-reliance through homeownership. Join a team on the next St. Luke’s Build Day to help build and revitalize homes in East Winter Garden.

BEFORE

Next Build Date: Saturday, December 3

Time: 9:00 a.m. to approx. 2:00 p.m. (Depending upon work being done, end time may be earlier.)

Location: 275 Center St, Winter Garden, FL. Parking is on-site.

 

St. Luke’s is partnering with West Orange Habitat for Humanity on a new community in East Winter Garden called Criswell Court, where four homes will be built.

This Build Day will include home construction activities.

Build days are scheduled from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. but may end early, and you are welcome to leave whenever your other Saturday commitments require.

All tools and instructions are provided. No construction experience is necessary — you may even pick up a new skill or two while you partner with other St. Lukers to make a difference for families in our community.
