Habitat for Humanity Monroe County Women Build
Fund Raising Deadline April 20, 2018. Contact your Team Leader if you need assistance.
|The Habitat for Humanity Women Build will be held in Monroe County from April 27 – May 12, 2018. The event brings women from around the area together to fundraise and build homes for two deserving families in need of simple, decent, affordable housing. All women are welcome to join us as a builder for a day with no prior building experience necessary – really! We will train you on site!|
Each volunteer builder asks friends and family to contribute a donation to help her reach her fundraising goal (minimum of $250). Overall, it takes 11 days to build the house – approximately 3200 volunteer hours.
The funds raised during Women Build sponsor the land, infrastructure, and materials needed for the homes, as well as the homeowner education training each future homeowner is required to complete. In addition to supporting the dream of homeownership for two families in Monroe County, the hundreds of supporters engaged with Women Build also sponsor a Habitat house in El Salvador, our sister affiliate.
