Volunteers build playhouses for Habitat for Humanity
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (CBS12) —
Get ready for a Summer in Paradise.
The city of West Palm Beach is bringing together several local nonprofits to create something special for residents and visitors!
On Thursday, an army of nonprofit volunteers teamed up with Habitat for Humanity of Palm Beach County to build fifteen child-sized playhouses.
Local artists will then paint the playhouses to represent several fairy tale favorites like Cinderella and Rapunzel.
On June 7, the miniature houses will officially go on display along the downtown waterfront where children can enjoy them.
Their purpose though is more than just entertainment; the goal here is to raise awareness about affordable housing while also raising money for the nonprofits.
On July 26, the playhouses will be auctioned off with all of the proceeds going towards its corresponding nonprofit.
Participating nonprofits include:
Adopt-A-Family of the Palm Beaches, Inc., Autism Speaks, Children Seen and Heard, Homeless Coalition of Palm Beach County, Palm Beach Habilitation Center, Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League, Police Athletic League of West Palm Beach, Take Heed Theater Company, Take Stock in Children Palm Beach County, The Arc of Palm Beach County, The Lord's Place, Inc., United Way of Palm Beach County, Urban Youth Impact, and Vita Nova, Inc.
