An Adopt-a-Day is a great way to have a group come together and do something for the community! Bring your corporate team members, church group, friends, or club members and work together for a day to help a low-income family build their house.
The Adopt-a-Day program is a meaningful and rewarding team-building experience for your organization. It’s also an excellent way to introduce a group to Habitat for Humanity and the mission of building homes, communities, and hope in partnership with the Des Moines community.
Your organization sponsors a day of work by making a contribution to GDM Habitat. Your group will work under skilled leadership of our site supervisors on one of our houses in progress. No experience required. Only your group will be on the work site and you will receive priority placement of work date.
As an Adopt-a-Day sponsor, your contribution supports GDM Habitat’s mission and allows for a great team-building exercise. Funds can be raised by individuals, companies, or through other grants. Adopt-a-Day Sponsors can provide 12 – 25 volunteers on their build and will have their names displayed on site and on Habitat’s website. They will also receive t-shirts for each participant and lunch/drinks on their build day. An Adopt-a-Day Sponsorship ranges between $2,500 and $5,000, which depends on the numbers of volunteers.

Interested in adopting a day of your own? Contact Jenna Ekstrom at or 515-471-8686 ext. 126.
