Building Hope 2 x 4 Sponsorship Program

Gather a group and share inspiration as you work together to make a difference by filling a Habitat home with messages of hope and support. Make a lasting mark in a home that will transform the lives of partner homeowners by decorating the 2 x 4 with pictures, symbols, and words of encouragement or blessings.

Studs are essential building materials that form the core of every home. It takes over 300 2 x 4 studs to build the frame of a Raritan Valley Habitat for Humanity (HFH) home. This is an opportunity for groups of all ages to exercise their creativity and partner with us by sponsoring a 2 x 4 and decorating it.

Once the Raritan Valley HFH home is framed, you will be invited to a casual “Stud Finder” event at the building site. At this event, you can meet the partner homeowner family, look for your 2 x 4 stud in the house’s framework, and witness first-hand the impact your sponsorship is making.      

Group Sponsorship: $200 per 2 x 4

Family Sponsorship: $100 per 2 x 4

The studs are available for pick-up at the Raritan Valley Habitat ReStore which is located at The Marketplace at Manville, 110 North Main Street, Manville, NJ. For additional details, questions or to reserve a 2 x 4, contact   Susan Harkins at (908) 704-0016 ext. 11 or email her at
