JACKSON HOLE, WYO – Winter is a challenging time for Teton Habitat. Volunteers to help work on a jobsite get harder to come by when it is cold outside. That’s why, Habitat for Humanity of the Greater Teton Area (Teton Habitat) is challenging community members to participate in the Winter Warrior Challenge.
Beginning January 1, the competition runs through March 31. During this time period, each hour spent volunteering earns participants a point in the challenge. The three volunteers with the highest number of points on April 1 will receive prizes for first, second and third place. The prizes include a summer get-a-way, concert tickets, free guided river trips, gift cards and more.
Habitat builds year-round and is in need of support during the winter months the most. It is critical to continue to have volunteers active on the site in order to meet project deadlines. The Winter Warrior Challenge aims to increase volunteer participation during the chilly months.
“If it’s not too cold to ski, it’s not too cold to build with Habitat,” says outreach coordinator, Elizabeth Ferguson. Individuals or groups are invited to participate in the challenge.
Volunteers are welcome to build with Teton Habitat at The Grove, 845 W. Snow King Ave, any Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday from 9:00am to 4:30pm. Interested volunteers should sign up online. Please make sure you always dress appropriately when you come to volunteer with Habitat, especially during the winter months.
