“A lot of people think we only build during the spring and summer, so we are really trying to get the word out that their help is needed now as well,” Crystal Bell, volunteer coordinator, said in a statement.

  • Volunteer 1 time and receive a Habitat Detroit Ice Scraper
  • Volunteer 5 times and receive a Carhartt Knit Hat
  • Volunteer 10 times and receive a Neofleece Headband
  • Volunteer 15 times and receive Toasty Glove Liners
