About the Build-A-Block Project

The Carolina Library Community continues with its efforts to build and raise funds for the UNC at Chapel Hill Build-A-Block initiative that is building ten homes for ten families through the Habitat for Humanity of Orange County. Those interested in contributing directly may sign up on the Build a Block Web site at:

Once you’re at the site, click on the Volunteer link at the top of the page. You can easily set up a user account and see what builds are available at the Phoenix Place site. The Carolina Library Community join code is 69.

If you wish to donate to the project, please select the link to donate at the top of the Build a Block Web page. This will take you to a secure form to donate by credit card. If you choose to donate this way, be sure to select Carolina Library Community under "My gift supports a Habitat Champion!" If you don't, the money will still go to Habitat for Humanity, but it will not be credited to the Library Community effort.
If you want to donate by check, that's great, too! Make any checks out to “Habitat for Humanity of Orange County” (NOT to UNC, the Library or to SILS), add a memo that the funds are for the Carolina Library Community. You may send checks or drop them off at either the SILS Administrative Office at Manning Hall or to the Library Administration Office in Davis Library.
