Build on the Green 2018

  • Join Raise the Roof, your Shoreline Habitat connection, for Build on the Green 2018 in Branford on May 12 from 9:00 am. to 4:00 pm. Volunteers will come together to build exterior walls for use in a future Habitat for Humanity house. Gather with Raise the Roof and your Shoreline neighbors for a community day of building…with something new this year! (Would you like some live music with that? Keep reading…)

    Register here in advance to build on one of four 90-minute build shifts. You can also register to help with setting up and cleaning up. Build volunteers must be at least 16 years of age and sign a waiver. Volunteers younger than 18 must have the waiver co-signed by a parent. If you’d like to help but prefer not to build, there are other volunteer opportunities for that day. E-mail
    Raise the Roof at with your hours of availability.

    We’re adding some new fun and excitement to the day! This year, while build volunteers swing hammers, the rest of the Shoreline community is invited to enjoy some great live music on the other side of the green. The Daniel Hand High School Habitat Club is offering Raise the Roof’s first Build on the Green Talent Showcase, which will feature performances by outstanding local artists, including soloists, a cappella groups, and bands. Come cheer on local talent and the build volunteers, who will add the percussion of their hammers as they build walls for the next Raise the Roof Habitat house. Great things can happen when a community unites for a special cause. Join us on the Branford Green, May 12!

    Stop by our Message Walls at the Build on the Green to write your wishes and blessings or add your artwork. The walls will be built into the next Raise the Roof Habitat house with all the messages tucked into the heart of the home.
