Habitat Builds: A Moving Experience

A Moving ExperienceHabitat for Humanity Manitoba's first online campaign received more than $20,000 in donations thanks to the generous people of Winnipeg. Habitat Builds ran from March 12th to June 20th with the goal to build one home for a Winnipeg family. Those who donated were able to watch their donation come to life in the heart of the city as the Habitat Builds home was constructed on the grounds of Memorial Park under the watchful eye of the Golden Boy. Volunteers had the opportunity to build alongside the very family who will soon be making the Habitat Builds house their home.

The family was also present as The Memorial Park build wrapped up at 4 a.m .on June 16th when the movers showed up to tow the house from the build site to its destined location on McCalman Avenue in Elmwood.

A Moving Experience"Since being accepted as homeowners, not only are we proud to pay a mortgage, but also by helping build our home, we have grown very attached to it and wanted to follow our home through all the stages," said Rene Van De Keere.

Thank you to those who volunteered their time or donated to Habitat Builds. Together, we can build a better Winnipeg one home at a time.
