Plan a Habitat Employee Retreat

By partnering with Habitat for a Team Build, your employees will play an important role in helping to break the cycle of poverty, strengthen our community, and build a brighter future for a local Habitat Homebuyer.

Have you been considering an expensive employee retreat? Have you been searching for a way to build morale among your employees? Have you wondered how you can achieve more goodwill in the community? Habitat for Humanity of Kanawha & Putnam has a program designed just for your needs – Corporate Team Build Days!

Team Builds with Habitat for Humanity of Kanawha & Putnam pro­vide a unique, fun, and rewarding experience for any group. Team Build days are designed to improve employee morale through a full and inspirational day on our construction site. In return, your company is encouraged to provide a sponsorship gift to cover construction expenses. 

No previous construction skills are needed, and Habitat for Humanity will provide the tools and training you need for success.

During an eight-hour day on the job site, your team will work alongside a partner homebuyer to help them build their home.

  • Your work day will help your team:
  • Build and strengthen relationships
  • Create memories
  • Improve communication
  • Build trust
  • Develop leadership skills
  • Demonstrate your organization’s commitment to community building
  • Foster goodwill by helping others

By participating with Habitat for Humanity for a Team Build, your team will play an important role in helping break the cycle of poverty, strengthen our community, and build a brighter future for a local family.

Group Size: We welcome groups of all sizes and can manage large groups with advance notice.

Location: 839 North Hills Drive, Charleston. T

Time: The work day begins at 8:00 am and ends at 4:00 pm.

Dates: View our Volunteer Calendar. Construction happens on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays. Contact us and provide us a date range and a preferred day of the week, and we will let you know what dates are open that match your availability.

Lunch: Lunch is a great time to take a break and learn more about Habitat for Humanity of Kanawha & Putnam. It is expected that your team will arrange to provide lunch on the job site for your group and any other volunteers that day. Please assign lunch duties to willing members of your team. Habitat is able to provide lunch to volunteers of sponsored events.
