      Habitat for Humanity Recruiting

      County’s Business Leaders To “Climb Another Ladder

      of Success” in CEO Build Program

         Continuing to “build” on the rare and powerful network
      and success of Habitat for Humanity of South Palm Beach
      County’s previous CEO Build initiatives, the nonprofit is
      now recruiting senior business leaders to create the fourth
      “House That CEOs Built” in South Palm Beach County.
         Veering outside  their  traditional  business  environs,
      senior executives and company owners are invited to “climb
      another ladder of success” on the CEO Build construction
      site on Friday, October 15th and Saturday, October 16th.
      Donned in hard hats and construction gear with hammers and
      power tools in hand, they will help build a safe, decent and
      affordable three-bedroom, two-bathroom home for a local,
      hard-working Habitat family.
         No building experience is necessary; CEO Builders work
      under the guidance of Habitat’s construction professionals
      and crew leaders alongside the future Habitat homeowners.
      Participants will get the chance to learn new carpentry skills,
      or perhaps hone the skills they may already have.
         To participate in this signature “leadership in action”
      experiential opportunity, each CEO Builder must donate or
      raise an individual minimum of $2,500 to underwrite the
      construction materials for this and other Habitat homes.
      When they meet or exceed their individual fundraising goal,
      each CEO Builder will participate in a full scope of building
