Any questions please call us at 586.263.1540.

Are you creative? Do you like to work with your hands? Are you a crafter, wood worker, artist or fancy yourself as a repurposing enthusiast? If you answered yes to any of these questions then WE NEED YOU!

Macomb County Habitat for Humanity is starting a Bid to Build On-line Auction website to help fund the mission! We would like to include items that have been donated through our ReStore and repurposed to become a one-of-a-kind item. All work will be done in our construction bay at 130 N Groesbeck, Mt Clemens, MI 48043;  Monday through Friday during the hours of 9-5.

 We will also occasionally have evening hours available. Whether volunteering on a build sight, in our office or helping to raise money, YOU WILL make a great impact!

If you have any questions or want to become part of this project please contact Terri Benson at 586-263-1540 ext. 114 or tbenson@macombhabitat.org.

 Thanks for your consideration!
