Habitat for Humanity of Sangamon County (HFHSC) and Lowe’s is inviting women to build with future homeowners during 10th Annual National Women Build Week, May 6th through 14th. As one of 300 Habitat organizations participating in the event, HFHSC will be hosting Women Build projects during the week with the support of Lowe’s, a longtime event partner.
Lowe’s helped launch National Women Build Week in 2008 and has contributed nearly $2 million to the 2017 National Women Build Week. Since 2003, Lowe’s has provided over $63 million to Habitat and assisted close to 6,500 families in improving living conditions.
On May 12th and 13th, local volunteers will be hanging drywall and continuing construction on Home #106, which is being built at 2112 Black Street in Springfield.
“We are excited to participate in the 10th Annual National Women Build Week,” said Habitat for Humanity of Sangamon County executive director, Colleen Stone. “This is a great opportunity for women of all skill levels to come together to help a family build a decent and affordable place they can call home, and we are grateful to Lowe’s for their financial and volunteer support.”
No construction skills are necessary to participate in this year’s project. To volunteer or donate, please call 217-523-2710 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information on National Women Build Week, visit Habitat.org/wb.
