Whirlpool and Habitat for Humanity are on a Nationwide Search for Volunteers. They have teamed up to kick off the Annual Habitat for Humanity Community Build.

This is the third annual Whirlpool Building Blocks program home-building blitz in Dallas Texas and they are looking for men and women who would love to apply to be part of the 2008 build team and help eliminate substandard housing in the United States.

Did you know that according to the National Low Income Housing Coalition and Habitat for Humanity, substandard housing affects 95 million people in the U.S.A? The Whirlpool Building Blocks Program was started so that volunteers (nearly 300 each year) could work hand-in-hand to create homes with families involved with Habitat for Humanity, you don't need any prior building or Habitat experience to apply.

Whirlpool has been a supporter of Habitat for Humanity and their mission to provide families with a home of their own. The Whirlpool Building Blocks program is just an extension of that commitment, they're asking their consumers to join them in their efforts to help raise awareness of the affordable housing crisis in this country.

Whirlpool Building Blocks program hopes that from November 16-21, 2008 along with the help of volunteers, nine families in the West Dallas community of Greenleaf Village II will have homes built. In West Dallas the median household income is $25,790 and it's estimated that one out of every three families in the community lives below the federal poverty level. Dallas is the third city to be chosen for this program since it was kicked off in Nashville in 2006 and then in Phoenix in 2007.

Why not help Whirlpool and Habitat for humanity if you're in the area, help improve lives, create a great neighborhood where children and families can come together and make that house a home for a family.
