Habitat News




We have a little more than a week until professional football’s biggest game of the year on Sunday, Feb. 2, and Memphis Habitat is still in need of more party hosts for the 10th Annual MX Skill Master HOME TEAM HUDDLE. While it’s true most HOME TEAM HUDDLE fundraising parties are held in people’s homes, ANYONE can host a HOME TEAM HUDDLE – in their home, house of worship, business, school, dorm or apartment. Anywhere really! You can even host your HUDDLE entirely online with our virtual HUDDLES!


Just because you work Monday-Friday doesn’t mean you and your coworkers can’t get in the game for Memphis Habitat. You can HUDDLE at work during the week leading up to the big game! Get creative with your office HUDDLE. Ask colleagues to donate $5 to wear jeans or their favorite team’s gear to work. Have a chili cook-off or potluck lunch. Host a pep rally for Habitat. Play games and ask contestants to donate. The sky’s the limit. The funds you raise at your office will go to help Memphis Habitat AND everyone who signs in at the party will be eligible to win the grand prize!  

Hilton Worldwide, a long-time HOME TEAM HUDDLE partner, hosted a HUDDLE on their Memphis campus in 2010. Employees had a great time raising funds for Habitat!

This year, Cargill plans to host an office HUDDLE on Friday, Jan. 31. But, we’re still looking for more offices to HUDDLE for Habitat. Contact Amy Paul at 901-322-3517 or to learn how your business can host a HUDDLE!

Faith-Based HUDDLES

Groups from all faiths are also invited to HUDDLE for Memphis Habitat. Faith-based groups can get involved in a number of ways – take up a special offering for Habitat at services the weekend of the big game, host a watch party for a youth group or reach out to congregants with a virtual HUDDLE. You could even inspire some friendly competition among study groups by challenging them to host their own parties!

Germantown United Methodist Church, one of Memphis Habitat’s oldest faith-based partners, has long been participating in HOME TEAM HUDDLE. Several of GUMC’s Sunday School classes host parties annually and go head-to-head to see who can raise the most for Memphis Habitat! GUMC classes have won the top fundraising party prize several times over the years, and a few GUMC members have even won the grand prize drawing!

Reach out to Amy Paul at 901-322-3517 or if your faith-based group would like to HUDDLE for Memphis Habitat!


The concept of the MX Skill Master HOME TEAM HUDDLE is simple. Habitat fans are asked to host fundraising parties at home during pro football's biggest game of the year on Sunday, Feb. 2 or virtual HUDDLES online. Hosts then ask their friends and family to consider making a donation of any size to Memphis Habitat. ALL party hosts and guests, regardless of whether they donate, are eligible to win the grand prize – a weekend getaway for two to an NFL city next season! Guests simply need to sign in at the party they attend, and they’ll be entered into the drawing. The top three fundraising hosts also receive great prizes!
