Calling All Ladies – We Need You!

,W_DtFA034I8qJHf2QBrH7vpAxhR6lRGr4n-sG_8ikLk,GoO-KBzhbTg3gTIe0XVuxL01j47xXyvZWF5LExqYlZkWomen Build is right around the corner and we need you more than ever. Amy Fender and Freddy Perez along with their families, are ready to put on their hard hats and work alongside you to turn their dreams into a reality. They’ve worked hard on their sweat equity and passed Habitat homeowner and money management education courses. Their efforts culminate in one of Habitat’s most exciting annual build events. With your help, we can build both homes in 11 days.

There are 400 volunteer opportunities associated with Women Build, and we rely on the fabulous women in our community to participate. Register today to secure your volunteer slot and to set up your personal fundraising page. Invite your friends to join you at the build as we all work together to raise the money and volunteers needed to build these homes.

Each volunteer is asked to raise at least $250 to help pay for the construction materials needed to complete the homes. Once you reach $250, you’ll receive a limited edition Women Build shirt to wear while you build. Raise over $250 to earn even more incentives.

You can set up your own fundraising page here.  Customize your page, get personal and share why the Women Build is important to you and why we should all work together to help these families in need. You can even make your own gift in honor or memory of a special woman for this Mother’s Day. Then, send the link to your friends and family inviting them to join you. It is easy, and we’ll provide you with lots of tips to help you get the word out about this amazing project.

Volunteering opportunities are available April 30 – May 14.

Participation in Women Build does not require any prior construction experience. However, if you are interested, Habitat for Humanity of Monroe County and longtime national partner Lowe’s are hosting “how-to” clinics for our women volunteers. Local clinics will be held at the Bloomington Lowe’s location and the Habitat Warehouse. Consult our event calendar for details.
