THANK YOU New Bern Habitat Crazies!

Thank you for volunteering for our Habitat Crazies Blitz Build Two Houses in Two Days! We are so excited for this event and can’t wait to see the outcome of the efforts extended by the Crazies and people like you!

There will be plenty of work for everyone but another goal is to meet and get to know the people working with the Crazies. There will also be times when we stop to transition or plan a next step or solve a problem. If you want to see how you fit, find a “Crazy” in an orange shirt.

Here are details you need to ensure a safe and wonderful day(s)!
