      All Yale alumni are welcome to join this Habitat for Humanity Chicago Team Build Day hosted by the Yale Black Alumni Association Chicago Chapter!

      This is your opportunity to help make a difference for the 1 in 10 Chicagoans currently living in inadequate housing. Our team will be working alongside Habitat staff and future Habitat homeowners on a house currently under construction in the Greater Grand Crossing neighborhood on our city's South Side. Our projects for the day may include anything from framing to painting, and Habitat staff will be available to teach you anything you need to know. No construction experience or skills needed, just a positive attitude and a willingness to learn!

      Lunch will be provided.

      Each member of the team must pledge to fundraise or donate at least $50 to contribute to the team's fundraising goal. All donations will support Habitat for Humanity Chicago, a nonprofit committed to building a city where every resident lives in a healthy home in a stable community.

      Email Cynthia Okechukwu '08, '13 JD if you are interested in joining the team or have any questions. Once you are added to the team, you will receive a link to register and set up your fundraising page. Please note that the team size is limited to 15 people.
