Builders Blitz 2022
The support and generosity of local builders forever change homeowners’ lives during Builders Blitz.
During this event, homeowners watched as local builders, along with their vendors and partners, constructed their home in just five days.
This year, five builders partnered with us to build six homes!
This incredible event brought another special week of community from Feb. 7-11, 2022, at Habitat Orlando & Osceola’s Silver Pines Pointe neighborhood.
Thank you to our 2022 builders: Jack Jennings & Sons, Park Square Homes, PCL Construction, Pulte Homes and Walker & Company. These companies, along with their subcontractors and vendors, donated the cost of building a home. Special thanks to Pulte Homes, which built two homes at this year’s event.
Watch Closing Ceremony!
Builders Blitz 2022 culminated on Feb. 12 with a touching key ceremony, where our builders presented the keys to our six new homeowners. The homeowners and the builders spoke about what Builders Blitz means to them. Watch this powerful 45-minute ceremony on our Facebook page.
