Build for Unity - Habitat for Humanity of Greater Sacramento
What is #BUILDforUnity ?
“Build for Unity” is a monumental interfaith build program and effort by Habitat for Humanity of Greater Sacramento to bring people together of different backgrounds and faiths to put aside differences and build homes and unity in our community.
In Sacramento, the various Christian, Muslim, Buddhist, Jewish, Sikh, and other interfaith communities have come together to fund and build two Habitat homes as a permanent representation of unity within our community. These homes were made possible through the generosity of 180 different faith communities and individuals who raised $176,000 and are currently working side by side to build the two homes as a symbol of unity. To learn more about our Build for Unity project, how it started, and the people behind the initiative – watch the video below or check out our Build for Unity publication.
Join us for the Build for Unity Dedication Event
June 22nd from 7:30pm-9:30pm at 1045 Neal Road Sacramento, CA 95838
Please join us for a very special and unique home dedication event as we celebrate the completion of our first Build for Unity homes. After a year and a half of fundraising, unity, and build efforts,
these two homes, made possible through the support of 180 faith congregations and individuals, are ready to be dedicated. Join us on June 22nd as we hand over the keys to the families,
tour the homes, break bread together with a special Iftar dinner, and celebrate this incredible moment for our families, our local Habitat affiliate, and our Sacramento Community.
It takes a community to build a community.
