Churches step up to the challenge during Blitz Build for Habitat for Humanity

CLARKSTON, WA - Every year a group of churches in the Valley team up to fight a cause.

This year, they're helping Habitat for Humanity take on a Blitz Build and construct a home in just two weeks.

The Shalom Project is group of 14 churches from around the Valley that work together. Normally it takes Habitat for Humanity six months to build a house in the Valley. But this year volunteers from the Shalom Project are going to build a house in two weeks.

"Put any kind of differences that they have theologically aside for a two week period," said Community Outreach Director, Chuck Cram. "Let's do something nice for our community, let's do something nice for our neighbors and let's get involved."

Habitat for Humanity helps break the cycle of poverty by helping people build a home without profit or payments. Children that move into a habitat home are 116% more likely to go to college than families who rent homes. The foundation of the Blitz Build home is being put into place. They'll start work on Monday April 21st.
