Habitat for Humanity and Lowe’s team up for National Women Build Week PDF Print

In the days leading up to Mother’s Day, construction crews of female volunteers pounded nails and raised walls at Habitat construction sites across the country in recognition of National Women Build Week, April 30 through May 8.

In Watauga County, NC, on May 7, Lowe’s Heroes and female volunteers in Boone worked on the Reid family’s new home, one of only 250 such groups chosen nationwide. Lowe’s is providing Watauga County Habitat for Humanity a $5,000 Lowe’s store gift card, as well as in-store volunteer training, in supporting this one-day build.

Members from Lowes, BB&T, The Mast General Store, The Appalachian Roller Derby Girls, and Watauga County Habitat for Humanity pose for a picture on the site of the first build day in the new 20 acre, 20 home GreenWood community in northern Watauga County. The day was part of the Habitat for Humanity National Women Build Week sponsored by Lowes. By completing the build, Watauga County Habitat qualifies for a $5000 Lowes gift card that can be used to purchase tools and materials needed to build homes in the new GreenWood community. Lowe’s, the underwriter of Habitat for Humanity’s Women Build program, is awarding more than $1.3 million to over 250 Habitat affiliates across the United States during National Women Build Week. Approximately 10,000 female volunteers are expected to build at Habitat for Humanity construction sites during this time.

Habitat’s National Women Build program recruits, educates and inspires women to build decent and affordable homes for low-income families in their communities.
