Past Events  
Building on Faith

Building on Faith With Thrivent Financial

Habitat Greater Boston partnered with Thrivent Financial to bring Building on Faith Week to the Boston area!

On Saturday, September 23, 2017 local congregation members joined shoppers at the Habitat Boston ReStore for a fun-filled cook-out featuring live music, games, hot dogs & hamburgers, and a chance to donate to and shop at the ReStore. Visitors met Thrivent representatives and learned more about their programs, and also learned about ways local congregations can partner with Habitat to help us build strength, stability and self-reliance through shelter.

ORGILL 2017

Fall 2017 ORGILL Dealer Market

Over 200 volunteers came to the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center over the weekend of August 26-27 to help Habitat Greater Boston pack up donated merchandise from the 2017 ORGILL Dealers Market.

Twice a year, ORGILL (the world's largest hardware wholesaler) holds a trade show in a different city, and this fall ORGILL came to Boston. ORGILL vendors generously donated unsold merchandise to Habitat Boston. Volunteers wrapped 579 pallets worth of merchandise which was then shipped to our West Roxbury ReStore to be sold at deeply discounted prices, raising funds for Habitat home construction. Donated products range from cleaning supplies, to gardening supplies, to bathroom fixtures.

Over 100 additional volunteers helped unpack items at our West Roxbury ReStore over the course of the following week.

Habitat Greater Boston extends a heartfelt THANK YOU to all those who generously gave their time to help out!

Boston Marathon®
2007, 2008, 2009

Habitat Greater Boston has been one of 26 charities selected in the past by the Boston Athletic Association to field a team of runners in the Boston Marathon. Each year from 2007 to 2009, the 15 "Habitat Hotfooters" ran the 26.2 miles from Hopkinton to Copley Square and raised thousands to help us build homes. In 2009 alone our marathoners were able to raise $75,000 for Habitat Greater Boston. 2009 was our last year as an official charity of the Marathon, but we look forward to watching you cross the Marathon finish line!
