Who knew building homes could be so sweet?

Habitat for Humanity GTA’s Gingerbread Build offers an easy way for you to help build safe, decent and affordable homes for local, low-income families while celebrating the holidays with friends and family.

The Gingerbread Build is the perfect family-friendly holiday activity to do at home, at school, or in the office or — better yet — at Habitat GTA’s 14th Annual Gingerbread Build event.

Come kick off the holiday season with Habitat GTA at its Gingerbread Build on December 3 and 4 in the Rotunda at Toronto City Hall. Spend a fun-filled morning or afternoon building and decorating your own gourmet gingerbread house. Children of any age can participate, giving them a valuable opportunity to learn about giving back to their community as a young Habitat volunteer.

All you need to do to participate is pre-order one of our Gingerbread Kits. Proceeds from your purchase support Habitat GTA’s homebuilding projects for families across the GTA.

The Gourmet Gingerbread Kits include a pre-assembled or un-assembled gingerbread house, cookies, icing and a toolbox full of candy. They are available in kosher, halal, and peanut-free to accommodate most dietary restrictions.

Each kit is $50 and proceeds support homebuilding at Habitat for Humanity GTA.

Order your kit by November 11, 2016 to receive 10 per cent off. Want to bring all the fun of our Annual Gingerbread Build to your home, school or office? There’s no better way to celebrate the holidays than building a ‘home sweet home’ with friends, family or colleagues. Download the toolkit for tips and tricks.
