June 14 – June 20th
The Habitat Philadelphia team and community celebrate and commemorate Juneteenth – the emancipation of those who had been enslaved in the United States.
It is a holiday that commemorates the abolition of enslavement in the United States. To learn more about the history of Juneteenth, we encourage you to read more here, provided by The National Museum of African American History and Culture.
At Habitat for Humanity Philadelphia, we close our office and construction sites on Monday, June 20th in observation and to remember the significance of Juneteenth. The ReStore will be closed in observation on Saturday, June 18. We encourage our Habitat Family to celebrate alongside us. Celebrate, educate, advocate, and shop in ways that support Black communities in and around Philadelphia.
