Habitat GTA's Gingerbread Build

Habitat for Humanity GTA’s 15th annual Gingerbread Build will take place on December 2nd, 2017. This “sweet” tradition geared towards families, gives children of all ages the opportunity to give back to the community through Habitat for Humanity GTA. Families come together to build Gingerbread homes while raising collective awareness of Habitat GTA’s vision that everyone deserves a safe, decent, and affordable place to call home. Each child taking part is helping ensure more kids their age will have a home that they are proud to call their own this holiday season. Gingerbread Build is also an opportunity for children to give back and understand that it is never too young to think about others.

about Gingerbread Build

Habitat for Humanity GTA will begin taking pre-orders for its popular gourmet gingerbread house kits during the month of November. Each delicious kit will contain an unassembled gingerbread house, cookies, and a toolbox full of candy. Kits will be $50 each with all proceeds going towards building homes for working, low-income families. Children get to take their gingerbread home.

why Gingerbread Build?

Those interested in participating will have two options:

  1. Participate at our event by decorating gingerbread homes with other families the first weekend of December (*Event Sold Out)
  2. Order one to take home to assemble and decorate on their own.

Either way, it’s a great way to celebrate and help working, low-income families in the GTA realize their dream of homeownership.

As a mother, it felt so good to see my daughter finally want to have her friends come over to our home. It made me so happy to see her smile, laugh, and play with her friends in our Habitat home.
