ReStore Info

Team Build Partnerships

A Team Build is a one-day construction experience for corporate teams of 10-25 people, working together on a new Habitat of York County house or home repair project. Together, your team will have fun, connect with their fellow colleagues in a truly meaningful way, and leave the build site proud of their accomplishments, their team, and their organization.

The suggested Team Build Partnership donation is $5,000. Partnerships, along with the donation of volunteers’ time, help offset the cost of labor and materials for a home.
