Each spring more than 10,000 women raised their hammers at Habitat for Humanity construction sites across the country in recognition of National Women Build Week. National Women Build challenges women to devote at least one day to help build affordable housing in their local communities.
We begin work on our eighth annual Women Build home on April 22, 2017 in Franklin, TN.
Habitat Williamson-Maury will be holding its 2017 Women Build kickoff event at The Drury Plaza Hotel on Saturday, March 4, 2017 and welcomes both men and women who might interested in learning more about volunteering on this build.
- Saturday, March 4
- The Drury Plaza Hotel -1874 West McEwen Drive Franklin, TN 37067
- 3:00pm to 5:00pm
- At 3:45, there will be a short presentation & tips on fundraising for the build.
- Veteran Women Build participants will be on hand to answer questions.
- Light appetizers will be served.
- Drinks, including wine & beer, can be purchased.
The sponsorship cost of the home is $70,000. Each volunteer who participates has a fundraising goal of $250 to go toward the cost of the house, and a volunteer goal of at least 1 day. To help participants raise money, a toolkit is provided with ideas and step-by-step instructions on how to raise the funds. In addition, Lowe’s and HFHWM will also offer optional, in-store workshops on Saturday mornings prior to the build to help participants learn skills for the build site. No experience in either fundraising or house-building is necessary.
The event is free, but please register so we can plan accordingly:
