Celebrate Mother’s Day early at kick-off

April 15, 2009 // 0 Comments

In the days leading up to Mother’s Day, crews of women volunteers will be pounding nails, raising walls and laying bricks at more than 175 Habitat for Humanity construction sites across the U.S. These non-traditional, pre-Mother’s Day activities are part of Habitat’s second annual National Women Build Week, May 2–10, sponsored by Lowe’s. You are invited to join in the fun with a Women Build Day on Wednesday, May 6th, 2009 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. (some half day shifts are available). This nationwide celebration during National Women Build Week brings together women from all walks of life to learn construction skills and then use those skills to build simple, decent affordable homes for families in their local community. It also helps Habitat for Humanity to raise awareness of the need for affordable housing by enlisting the help of new women volunteers. Women (and men too!) of all skill levels can play a vital role in eliminating poverty housing. Site supervisors will be on-hand to provide training, assistance, and encouragement. To register for Women Build Day, contact Colleen Mahon-VanDoren at (616) 774-2431 ext 224 or email Lunch, t-shirts and a few surprises are in store for the day!
