680 CJOB is happy to support and partner with the Carter Work Project from July 9th - 14th!
We have been honored to have two of the world’s most respected and famous people as dedicated and hardworking Habitat volunteers for more than 30 years.
Former President Jimmy Carter and former first lady Rosalynn Carter demonstrated their commitment to social justice and basic human rights over and over again during their time in the White House, and their resolve has only deepened since moving on, most notably through the Carter Center in Atlanta. They have also worked on numerous Habitat builds both in the United States and around the world alongside diligent volunteers just like you.
In March 1984, President and Mrs. Carter worked with Habitat in Americus, Georgia. This led up to their long-term involvement with us. They quickly realized that our mission closely aligned with their values, and a partnership was formed. Just a few months later, in September of that same year, the Carters led a Habitat for Humanity work group to New York, serving 19 families in need of safe, affordable housing. That was the inaugural Carter Work Project, which is now a weeklong event taking place in a different location all over the world each year.
“Habitat has successfully removed the stigma of charity by substituting it with a sense of partnership.” — Jimmy Carter
If you’d like to be a part of this special event, you do not need prior building experience to volunteer. There are opportunities for all skill levels and abilities. You may also volunteer with others, or come solo. All contributions are welcome. Consider lending your time and talents to build and renovate homes, because improved communities benefit us all.
The Carters have seen firsthand the effects of poor living conditions, and understand that both big and small actions can make all the difference. To ensure the greatest success, families need a strong foundation to grow. That often begins with a safe place to call home. You can help us provide that for families everywhere.
Throughout their involvement with the Carter Work Project, President and Mrs. Carter have become tireless advocates, active fundraisers, and some of our best hands-on construction volunteers. Additionally, they have rallied thousands of volunteers and even celebrities, helping Habitat for Humanity to becoming internationally recognized for its work to build decent and affordable housing. To date, President and Mrs. Carter have served with over 92,260 volunteers in 14 countries to build, renovate and repair 3,944 homes. They have also made quite an impression on thousands of Habitat homeowners and volunteers.
We are grateful for President and Mrs. Carter's continued partnership, and encourage you to participate in the Carter Work Project, adding to the legacy of this great work. You don’t have to have a lot of influence to make a difference, just the motivation to do the work needed.
