Project Playhouse Blitz Build is an annual event in support of Habitat for Humanity Maumee Valley. Habitat for Humanity strongly believes in teaching children the value of homeownership at pride at a young age. Over 25 organizations are proud sponsors of this year’s event, including OCP.

Besides a financial commitment that goes towards building family homes in Lucas County, sponsors brainstorm their playhouse design based on the child who will receive the playhouse. OCP’s children’s interests included basketball, Paw Patrol, and the colors blue and yellow..

Sponsors provide a team to ensure the design comes to fruition. This year, OCP’s team consisted of the following employees:

  • Pam Hepburn
  • Cathy Goss
  • Kelli Smigelski
  • Jenni Harris
  • Jim Meinert
  • Thad Leinbach
  • Chris Gunderman
  • Matt Mass
  • Richard Guiher
  • Rob Harris

Concluding the event, each team meets the children who will be receiving the playhouse and their families. OCP’s playhouse this year went to Robert and Andrew. Their parents were overjoyed with the playhouse, and could not have been more appreciative! "Thank you so much again! Lil Rob likes to go outside even more now. When we first brought his house home, he asked me if I could open the curtains so he could see his playhouse! I’m sure once Andrew gets bigger, he will enjoy it as much too!"
