In a partnership with Habitat for Humanity Metro Maryland, we will virtually build chairs for low-income families, veterans and seniors in the Metro Maryland area wishing to age in place through affordable housing, critical repairs, and accessibility modifications. This is a fun and interactive way to get engaged from the safety of your home.
Habitat for Humanity is a global nonprofit housing organization working in local communities across all 50 states in the U.S. and in approximately 70 countries. Habitat’s vision is of a world where everyone has a decent place to live.
Habitat works toward our vision by building strength, stability and self-reliance in partnership with families in need of decent and affordable housing. Habitat homeowners help build their own homes alongside volunteers and pay an affordable mortgage.
Habitat for Humanity Metro Maryland is a nonprofit corporation that was formed under the laws of the State of Maryland on November 3, 1982, for the purpose of creating decent and affordable homeownership opportunities in Montgomery and Prince George’s Counties, MD.

Through a virtual platform such as Zoom, participants will work with Habitat staff to build an Adirondack chair to support affordable housing efforts. Habitat will take care of ordering all the items from a national supplier who will ensure that they are delivered to each participant’s doorstep. Everything is included in the kit. All you’ll need is a Philips Head screwdriver — no power tools are needed.
At the conclusion of the virtual build days, a date will be established for participants to drop off the chair at an FBCG location and Habitat will be on-site to receive the chairs. These items will then be given to partner families or sold in Habitat ReStores to generate additional income for affordable housing.
If you’re located outside of the DMV area, you can donate the chair to the Habitat ReStore nearest you. If you donate at a ReStore, call in advance to confirm donation hours. Hours have been modified and restricted due to COVID.
Anyone who has the heart to serve. All skill levels welcome. Habitat staff will help you along the way virtually.
