Habitat for Humanity of Pinellas and West Pasco's giving circle known as “Hunks with Hammers” is a group of 50 men that support Habitat’s mission of affordable housing. “Hunks with Hammers” was started by a Habitat supporter, Marc Banning of Banning Lumber and Millwork. Mr. Banning wanted a men’s group similar to the Habitat women’s giving circle “Hammers and Heels” also spear headed by donor and previous board member, Judy Mitchell.

This group of dedicated donors and volunteers has been active for almost two years. The first home is now under construction in St. Petersburg. The homeowner candidate is a single father of five. There are ten sponsors on this special build and many of them are companies owned by the members of the group. The men meet at local establishments around Pinellas County for strategy and socializing. The group is committed to building a second home next year but needs your support.
