Open Applications for 2020 HBF Blitz Build Ramps!
The Home Builders Foundation is currently seeking out applications for people needing ramps to be completed during our 2020 Blitz Build!
In 2011, the HBF organized the Inaugural Blitz Build, where seven ramps were built for seven families across the Denver metro area in just three days. The Blitz Build was a huge success for the recipients, the HBF and all of the companies involved. Since 2011, more than 150 ramps have been completed during Blitz Build weekends, mobilizing hundreds and volunteers and impacting recipients and their extended networks of care. In 2020, we plan on building on the success of the past eight years by completing at least 20 ramps (possibly more!) on August 20th, 21st, and 22nd, 2020.
Even though the HBF builds ramps year-round, during our Blitz Build event, we are able to build so many in just 3 days by mobilizing more than 200 volunteers to complete the work. We have the capacity to do 20 (possibly more!) ramps so we’re reaching out to our community partners to spread the word about referring possible ramp projects to us.
If you need a ramp, or have a client, colleague or family member who is in need of a ramp, please fill out the application for assistance. Note: Any ramp applications received from now through June 2020 will be considered for the Blitz Build. Projects need to meet the requisite qualifications and will be reviewed on a first-come, first-served basis of the completed application.
Please also feel free to pass along the email and application link your networks, and/or share our social media posts with this announcement (coming in the next week or so).
