The "Blitz Board" is back! Your Board of Outreach is seeking donations for Habitat For Humanity of Oakland County's Women Build 2014. A team of dedicated women of all ages, ethnicities and religions is building a completely accessible, barrier-free home for a 28-year-old woman with cerebral palsy who uses a motorized scooter.
