Teton Habitat launches ‘Winter Warrior’ challenge

JACKSON, Wyo. — Yes, the point of volunteering is to give back to the community without any reward but the feeling of satisfaction from doing something good. Still, a little incentive never hurt, and Teton Habitat just put it on the table.

Teton Habitat just announced its 3rd annual Winter Warrior Challenge, a volunteer competition that rewards people for hours logged. From January 4 through March 28, Habitat volunteers can log hours for a chance to win prizes.

Each hour spent volunteering earns participants one point in the challenge. The volunteers with the highest number of points on April 1 will receive prizes for first, second, and third place. Prizes this year include a night stay and dinner at The Wort Hotel, dinner for two with wine pairing from King Sushi, and one-hour vehicle diagnostics plus one and a half hours of labor from Auto Service Elevated.

Habitat builds year-round and is most in need of support during the winter months. It is critical to continue to have volunteers active on the site in order to hit our project deadline. The Winter Warrior Challenge aims to increase volunteer participation during the chilly months.

“Lending a hand at the jobsite during the winter is super helpful and a very warming experience,” says Community Engagement Manager Elizabeth Ferguson. “Volunteers have the opportunity to work alongside our construction team and future homebuyers.” Individuals and groups are invited to participate in the Winter Warrior Challenge.

Volunteers are welcome to build with Teton Habitat at The Grove, 825 W. Snow King Ave, any Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday from 9 a.m.–4:30 p.m.. Interested volunteers should sign up online. Make sure to always dress appropriately, especially during the winter months. This winter, volunteer tasks include, but are not limited to, interior finishes, flooring, installing cabinets and framing the final building at The Grove.
