Press release from Raise the Roof

Raise the Roof has scheduled its Build on the Green 2017 on the Branford Green on Saturday, May 13 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Volunteers will come together to build exterior walls for use in a future Habitat for Humanity house.

Participants are asked to register in advance for one of four 90-minute build shifts. Visit to find out how to register.

Volunteers are sought to help with set up and clean up. Build volunteers must be at least 16 years of age and sign a waiver. Volunteers younger than 18 must have the waiver co-signed by a parent. Those who would like to help but prefer not to build will be able to participate in other volunteer opportunities for that day. Email Raise the Roof at with hours of availability.

People are also invited to come to the Branford Green on May 13 to write their wishes and blessings or add artwork on one of the Message Walls, which will be built into the next Raise the Roof Habitat house, tucked into the heart of the home.
