National Women Build Week Recap

nwb 1From May 5-13, Habitat and Lowe's engaged women nationwide to work together and build Habitat homes during the 11th annual National Women Build Week! The goal of National Women Build week is to inspire and empower women to advocate and help Habitat homeowners love where they live through building or improving an affordable place they can call home. We want to engage women of all skill levels to join their friends, families and neighbors to build up our communities and lend a hand.

Since its inception in 2008, NWBW 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. This year, Lowe’s donated nearly $2 million to Habitat for Humanity to support the 2018 National Women Build Week, which took place in 300 communities nationwide.

Locally, Habitat Catawba served with 51 volunteers who volunteered 197 hours repairing, building, and painting homes in Northstone and on a repair site.. Thank you for joining with us to build something better in our community!
