Hattiesburg Area Habitat for Humanity and Lowe’s
invite women to volunteer during
National Women Build Week
Women to build homes nationwide in partnership with local low-income families May 2-10, 2015
Women in the Greater Hattiesburg Area are invited to volunteer during Habitat for Humanity’s eighth annual National Women Build Week. Hattiesburg Area Habitat for Humanity is one of more than 300 Habitat affiliates nationwide hosting Women Build projects with the support of Lowe’s, Habitat’s longtime partner in the event.
National Women Build Week, held May 2-10, challenges women to devote at least one day to building simple, decent and affordable housing in their local communities. More than 52,000 women volunteers from all 50 states have participated in previous years.
“We are excited to participate in National Women Build Week,” said Michael Pascarella, executive director of Hattiesburg Area Habitat. “This is a great opportunity for women of all skill levels to come together to help a family in need.”
Lowe’s helped launch National Women Build Week in 2008, and each year provides the support of Lowe’s Heroes employee volunteers and conducts how-to clinics at stores to teach volunteers construction skills. This year, Lowe’s contributed $1.75 million to National Women Build Week as part of a new five-year partnership with Habitat that will bring Lowe’s total contributions to more than $63 million since 2003. In celebration of this renewed partnership, Lowe’s and Habitat launched Hammers for Habitat, a volunteer initiative inviting men and women across America to give one day to help make the dream of homeownership a reality for a family in their community.
