May 6 – 25, 2017 – Extended dates this year!
42 Chestnut Street, Nashua, NH
Hey ladies! Sign up to build with us during National Women Build Week, Sponsored by Lowe’s, a nationwide Habitat for Humanity event that brings women together to volunteer and build homes for local deserving families. You’ll roll up your sleeves for a day and raise a few dollars, all for a great cause.
What Is National Women Build Week?
National Women Build Week, sponsored by Lowe’s, is Habitat’s week-long event for women who want to learn construction skills and build homes and communities. No experience is necessary! From May 6 through May 25, our volunteers will come together to work on our newest build at 42 Chestnut Street in Nashua, NH. This home is a duplex and will be a decent, safe, and affordable home for TWO local families when completed!
Women Build does not exclude men, but rather includes women in the construction process, offering an empowering, unique, fun and positive environment for women to give back in their communities. To make Women Build Week possible, participants are asked to pay a $25 registration fee* and raise a minimum of $225* each. Participants will receive a Women Build Week 2017 t-shirt and goodies, catered lunch and beverages, and a chance to win a fantastic raffle prize! (Click here to view our Fundraising Packet)
(*Note: The registration fee is waived for volunteers of a paid sponsored build day. Participants will still fund raise the $225/ea or the recommended goal of $1,000 as a Team.)
Our Build Schedule … is expanding! It’s officially WOMEN BUILD MONTH!
Each build day takes place from 9:00 AM – 3:00 PM and is limited to 10 (12 max) participants per day.
