Habitat Partner Homeowner Laura Marquez Shares her Experience Volunteering at the 5th Annual General Hospital Fan Build!

We would like to give a special thanks to everyone, celebrities and fans alike, who came out and participated in the 5th Anniversary of our General Hospital Fan Build Day. We have been receiving such wonderful feedback that we decided to share! This was a letter we received from #GHFanBuild5 volunteer and Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles (HFH GLA) partner homeowner, Laura Marquez.

The 5th Anniversary of the General Hospital Fan Build Day was great! It was exciting and heartwarming to see how fans of General Hospital (GH) from all across the country come out to help HFH GLA, while getting to socialize with their favorite GH stars. The cast members were modest and super enthusiastic about getting right to work on the homes that would ultimately go to a deserving family. I personally got to work alongside three GH fans that were being serenaded by one of stars while he painted the siding on a home. He gave one of them the “how-to” on painting, I’m sure that his lighthearted spirit helped buffer the effects of the arduous work being done.
The whole event was enjoyable and full of jovial fun!

Giveback Homes' Build Day Was A Huge Success!

Blog posted by Jennifer Wise, Vice President of Resource Development:

 Giveback Homes is a trusted network of real estate agents, mortgage brokers, builders and interior designers who have pledged to donate a percentage of their commissions to help build homes for families in need. 

Thus far, the organization has built 10 homes for families, living in extreme poverty in Central America, and has recently brought their building model here to the U.S! Last week, over 30 members of Giveback Homes teamed up to participate in a full day of building on our seven-home, Lynwood neighborhood, with the goal of creating a brand new affordable and sustainable home for hardworking, low-income families. 

We are thrilled to be a part of the first U.S build for Giveback Homes and look forward to many more with them! 

Check out coverage of our day with them here and visit Giveback Homes to join them!
