"Rockin' in Rockford"
In 2009 the Blitz Home Builders traveled to Rockford Illinois, just outside of Chicago. Executive Director Tonya Thayer along with the entire Rockford Habitat Board of Directors were very welcoming and appreciative to have us. Over 55 BHB volunteers traveled to the Midwest to build two homes in 8 days.
It was amazing to see so many of the Rockford Board members out on site hitting nails with us. One such Board Member even signed up with BHB and joined us the following summer on the 2010 Wichita build.

A core group of volunteers has been building together since 1996 sponsored by Honeywell, and in 2004 the Blitz Home Builders began organizing our own builds to keep the tradition alive.
