Playhouse build helps raise money for Bay Area housing
Bay Area Habitat for Humanity groups teamed up with the Golden State Warriors’ front office staff
to build playhouses at Brookdale Park in Oakland on August 29.
“It’s a win-win-win,” said Patti Wang Cross of Habitat for Humanity East Bay/Silicon Valley. The
Warriors’ staff constructed and decorated 14 playhouses during the build day.
Those houses were later donated to local families and schools. The money raised
from the build–participating companies pay about $2,000 for each playhouse they build–goes back to Habitat for Humanity, which builds affordable housing for low-income families and helps existing homeowners remain in their homes by helping with repairs and modifications.
