For the 11th year, Habitat for Humanity and Lowe’s are engaging women nationwide to work together to build Habitat homes during this year’s National Women Build Week from May 5th-13th. In preparation for the build week, Habitat Bucks and Lowe’s are asking women to get involved by signing up to volunteer and build.
“We’re excited to partner with Lowe’s to educate, inspire and empower women to advocate for housing solutions, and help Habitat homeowners by building or improving an affordable place they can call home,” said Florence Kawoczka, Executive Director of Habitat Bucks. “We want to engage women of all skill levels to join their friends, families and neighbors to build up their communities. And through volunteering, women will gain invaluable skills to bring back and use in their everyday life.
On May 9-12 local volunteers will be fully renovating a three bedroom home in Levittown. Anyone interested in building should email email@example.com
National Women Build Week, a nationwide initiative created by Habitat for Humanity and Lowe’s in 2008, has brought together more than 117,000 all-women construction volunteers to build or repair homes with nearly 5,000 families over the past 10 years. Habitat and Lowe’s encourage all women to volunteer—no construction skills or experience in Habitat builds necessary. To learn more about National Women Build Week, visit Habitat.org/wb.
