An event every day that begins at 8:00 am, repeating until May 9, 2018
Habitat for Humanity’s National Women Build is an annual event created by Habitat’s Women Build program in partnership with Lowe’s Home Improvement. The program invites women to devote at least one day to help families build strength, stability and independence through housing. The event is meant to spotlight the homeownership challenges faced by women.
National Women Build Week is held the week leading up to Mother’s Day with Lowe’s generously donating nearly $2 million dollars and volunteer support. Hosting the event during this week reinforces the message that every woman can make a difference through learning and using construction skills. More than 98,000 women from all 50 states have volunteered at the nine previous National Women Build Week events.
In addition to the financial and volunteer support, local Habitat organizations and Lowe’s offer how-to clinics to help prepare volunteers for the build site.
Women Build participants receive a Women Build t-shirt, construction how-tos, a chance to make new friends, and a chance to leave a community legacy.
