2018 Bike to Build

Bike to Build is a fundraiser for Clinton-Gratiot Habitat For Humanity. By participating and raising funds for Bike to Build, you are partnering with Habitat For Humanity to eliminate substandard housing in Clinton and Gratiot Counties.

DOE registration starts at 7:30 AM and ends at 9:30 AM at Northpointe Community Church in DeWitt. Riders can choose between 75, 50, 35 and 20 mile routes. All routes begin and end at Northpointe Community Church. Every rider will pass through at least one rest stop featuring restrooms and refreshments. Lunch will be served to all riders between 10:30 AM and 3:00 PM at Northpointe Community Church. SAG support will be provided from 7:30 AM until 3:00 PM.

2018 Rock the Block

We are planning to carry out a “Rock the Block” in Ithaca, possibly in early June 2018. “Rock the Block” is a neighborhood revitalization project driven by volunteers and intended to make repairs, clean up and brighten a neighborhood’s future. In your travels, if you notice a block which needs help, please contact Dawn Parker at 989-227-1771, ext. 4.

Elsie Build

We are currently building a home in Elsie for which we do not currently have a family. If you know of anyone living in an unsafe situation — mold, damaged roof, etc. — or are living in a home which is too small for the number of people living there, please contact L Quinn at 989-227-1771, ext. 3 or Jason at ext. 6.
