Summer can be busy, and not every Habitat supporter can spend a day volunteering on a Habitat build or home repair site. That's why we've put together a list of fun ways you can support Habitat's mission and enjoy our Minnesota summer, too!

Sidewalk Dog Restaurant Pass

The Sidewalk Dog Restaurant Pass brings dogs and their owners together to enjoy summer patios at popular Twin Cities restaurants! The pass holder will receive a free beer or wine at 26 local Twin Cities restaurants. A portion of the proceeds will benefit Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity.

Cookie Bakers Needed!

Cookie Bakers provide treats in recognition of our volunteers on construction sites and at the ReStore. Bake a batch or two and drop them off at our office so we can deliver them to our amazing volunteers out on site!
