Ready for Blitz Build!

A “Blitz Build” is planned at Adams County Habitat for Humanity’s newest building site, located on Fifth Street, Gettysburg, on June 6-8 and 13-15.

This period of intense building, involving dozens of volunteers, is designed to jump-start construction of a new duplex-style home. Volunteers are primarily supplied by the congregations of 14 covenant churches in Adams County. To volunteer, contact Bob Remaley at coachremaley (at)

Since its inception in 1988, Adams County Habitat has provided 32 homes to low-income families. The Blitz Build commences work on the non-profit organization’s 33rd home. To follow the construction progress, check the Adams County Habitat for Humanity Facebook page.

Habitat for Humanity’s vision statement is “A world where everyone has a decent place to live.” The organization’s mission states, “Seeking to put God’s love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope.”

Media coverage is welcome during the Blitz Build! To check on exact construction times or to coordinate volunteer interviews, please contact:
