Use your special day to DO GOOD for the community with a Brookings Habitat Birthday Build! Whether you have experience or are completely new to tasks, we'll help you celebrate in a completely unique way that helps you help others.
We'll provide the cake, commemorative t-shirts and training for your crew of friends, family, or neighbors as you spend time on a home build. You'll learn new skills while having fun and feeling great about the impact your special day can have on others.
Participants must be age 18+. Contact us for more details.
Every year the Brookings Area Habitat for Humanity hosts two or three groups of Care-A-Vanners. These dedicated individuals and couples travel across the country to assist in builds for multiple affiliates, including ours.
What do RV Care-A-Vanners do?
- They travel around the United States and Canada, helping local Habitat for Humanity affiliates build hundreds of houses annually.
- RV Care-A-Vanner volunteers participate in projects such as house construction, roofing, interior, and finish work, renovations, or disaster relief.
- Those who prefer non-construction activities can volunteer in the Habitat affiliate office, or help in other ways around the building site.
- Many RV Care-A-Vanners help local Habitat affiliates raise the awareness of poverty housing and homelessness by speaking to churches, civic groups, and local media.
- Individual Care-A-Vanners often make donations to their local Habitat affiliate.
- Some even organize fundraising teams and sponsor entire houses.
