2019 SuperBuild

Build Date – May 18, 2019

Once again our goal to build homes and the number of homes that we are able to build will depend on you and your club’s commitment. For those that have never participated, Super Build was designed thru a partnership between Corazon and District 5300 many years ago. It is an opportunity for Rotarians, future Rotarians, friends and family to change the lives of families Internationally with a hands on project….building homes! Participants can range in age from 15 to 100! There are jobs for all including painting, passing out water, translating, framing, roofing etc.. You do not have to have experience to be able to join us.  Cost – $9,000 per home

We will be starting our journey at 5:30 am just outside of Chula Vista and traveling by bus to the area outside of Tecate Mexico. Each home that will be built will have a bus to transport all participants to the exact location of the build. The home(s) being built take 40-45 volunteers with the cut off at 45 per home. The cost for each bus requires us to charge $30.00 per person round trip. It is imperative that all participants take the buses due to the inability to handle numerous cars at build sites. If volunteers are staying in Mexico and cannot take the buses then the charge of $30.00 per person will still be collected from all participants.

We will arrive in Mexico at the build sites by 9:00 am and begin construction and return to our meeting place usually before or by 6:00 pm. In the past sometimes there are delays at the border due to large amounts of people that may slow our arrival time on the return. The wonderful news is that in one day we change the lives of a family by giving them the protection and security of a home….again ALL IN ONE DAY!

Hotel Rooms will be blocked for all participants if you are traveling a distance and would like a room the night of the 17th and 18th of May.  We are usually able to get discounts. Further information regarding rooms will follow.

Accomodations are being made at La Quinta Inn, 150 Bonita Rd., Chula Vista, CA telephone 619-691-1211 and will include a 5:00AM Saturday morning breakfast for our ‘special start’.  For room reservations they must use District 5300 Rotary…Robin Smith to get the discount. The official Meeting place is 360 East H street, Chula Vista, CA 91910.

2016 Super Build

April 30, 2016 Corazon Super Build a Success!

superbuild_image3In partnership with Corazon, another non-profit organization that has been working to assist and strengthen communities in Mexico for over 20 years, District 5300 has built homes and contributed funds to the education of the families we build for. District 5300 has participated in this everlasting project since 2007.

Started by Christine Montan, Superbuild was carried for many years by Past District Governor, Gene Hernandez.  Gene was honored this past build with a “Blue Shirt” which is a significant recognition by Corazon!

Rotarians and others have built anywhere from one to four homes a year for families that have dedicated hundreds if not close to two thousand hours to their communities!

Their commitment does not stop there. They commit themselves to further their education, to learn new trades to gain employment , to keep their children in school, to learn how to provide food through planting gardens, and to assist their neighbors and friends in achieving their dreams as well!

The cost to District 5300 is $8400 for each house built which includes all mentioned above!  This year we raised enough to build four homes!  A special thank you goes to the Pasadena Rotary Club and The Las Vegas Club. Two years in a row they have paid for two of the four homes. For the past three years, due to these clubs as well as the growing recognition that SuperBuild is achieving through the hearts of many Rotarians and their clubs, we continue to grow in the numbers of volunteers and homes built!
