ABoR: Home for the Holidays Blitz Build with Habitat for Humanity

One of our favorite volunteer opportunities is around the corner, and it’s a big one: On December 3, ABoR Foundation is kicking off its “Home for the Holidays” Blitz Build with Habitat for Humanity for the seventh year in a row. Bring in the holidays by giving back to the community! We’ll be building a home for Tede Tchabou, an assistant in a nursing home and a mother of two teens.

Grab a friend and sign up below to volunteer during one of the ten fun and rewarding build days happening December 3-20.
