Habitat for Humanity Raise the Woof!

From 9:00AM to 3:00PM
Location: 302 N Broadway, Urbana, IL

Teams of 4-8 people will have 5 hours to build a dog house on site at the Habitat for Humanity warehouse. Teams will be given lumber, screws, shingles, the plan for a basic dog house and access to some power tools; your group will supply tools and anything extra, such as paint, decoration and accessories. We encourage you to plan ahead and be creative!

At the end of 5 hours, dog houses will be judged and awarded prizes on site in a number of different categories, including “Judges’ Choice” and “Most Creative.” The dog houses will then be displayed for 2 weeks at the Habitat for Humanity ReStore, where the public can vote for their favorite and bid to own one of the houses.

Our friends at Hospice Hearts, a local animal rescue who finds homes for older pets needing “furever” homes, will be at the event with adorable adoptable dogs and face painters. Local food trucks will be on site, selling a variety of tasty treats.  Have fun while watching your friends, neighbors, and local community groups come together for a good cause!

There is a $250 entry fee per team, to cover the cost of materials, although teams are encouraged to fundraise as much as possible! The top fundraising teams will earn cool Raise the Woof! swag and recognition awards while the team that fundraises the most will be invited out to their own private Habitat build day and will have their team name displayed on a plaque at the ReStore.  

All money raised through “Raise the Woof!” will be used to fund future Habitat for Humanity builds here in Champaign County.

Gather your team and SIGN UP HERE to start fundraising today!


We have made it easy for you to get started!
