Habitat For Humanity And Lowe’s Team Up For National Women Build Week

 

The participants from this year’s Habitat Women’s Build.

Work on Claude and Miriam Ndumurwanko’ s house began, not with men pounding nails, but with 26 women renovating the 100-year-old house in recognition of National Women Build Week. Developed through the partnership between Lowe’s and Habitat for Humanity, National Women Build Week celebrates the compassion, dedication, talents and abilities of women from all walks of life. The goal is to showcase the accomplishments of Habitat’s women volunteers and invite new women volunteers to join the effort to provide safe,  affordable housing.

Lowe’s underwrites the Habitat for Humanity Women Build program, bringing women together to learn construction skills and then use those skills to be part of the solution to poverty housing. Lowe’s provided Habitat for Humanity in the Roanoke Valley a $5,000 grant in support of this one-day Women Build.

“Lowe’s has been the proud sponsor of Habitat’s Women Build program since 2004.  This innovative program encourages women from all walks of life to pick up their hammers and build homes alongside Habitat partner families,” said Larry D. Stone, Lowe’s president and COO and chairman of the Lowe’s Charitable and Educational Foundation. “Lowe’s salutes the thousands of women who’ve volunteered on Habitat job sites during the past 20 years and for years to come.”
