Our local affiliate is one of 300 Habitat organizations nationwide hosting Women Build projects during the week with support from Lowe’s, a longtime partner in the event.
From May 6-14, 2017, local volunteers will serve a family in need of an affordable, accessible, barrier free home. The home has been specially designed to meet the needs of a family with a physical disability.
National Women Build Week brings together women to devote at least one day to building decent and affordable housing in their local communities. This is our fifth year participating as a local affiliate. Nearly 100,000 women from all 50 states have volunteered in previous years.
“Once again, we are privileged to participate in the 10th annual National Women Build Week,” said Rev. Jeremy Montgomery, CEO of the Plainfield and Middlesex affiliate. “This is a great opportunity for women of all skill levels to come together to help a family build or repair a decent and affordable place they can call home, and we are grateful to Lowe’s for their financial and volunteer support.”
Lowe’s helped launch National Women Build Week in 2008. Each year, the company provides the support of Lowe’s Heroes volunteers and conducts how-to clinics at stores to teach volunteers construction skills. This year, Lowe’s contributed nearly $2 million to National Women Build Week. Since its partnership began in 2003, Lowe’s has committed more than $63 million to Habitat and helped nearly 6,500 families improve their living conditions.
No construction skills are necessary to participate in this year’s project.
