RCG Lands Terrific Media Coverage for Habitat’s “Home Builders Blitz”

We were proud to help our client, Habitat for Humanity of South Hampton Roads, stage its “Home Builders Blitz” from June 5-9.

During the “Blitz,” hundreds of volunteers from the community came together and built a house from scratch in the Lake Kennedy neighborhood in Suffolk.

And did we mention Habitat built the home in just FIVE days!

The “Blitz” event was a great opportunity for local builders to invest in their community and provide a deserving family with a place to call home.

During the week, we encouraged media in Hampton Roads to cover the build. We were able to obtain coverage from WAVY, WTKR, WVEC and The Virginian-Pilot.
