Habitat for Humanity and Lowe’s team up for National Women Build Week

Women volunteers representing “The Build Generation” will raise their hammers at Habitat for Humanity construction sites across the country in recognition of National Women Build Week, May 5- 13. National Women Build Week is a nationwide initiative of Habitat for Humanity’s Women Build program developed in partnership with Lowe’s.

This year’s theme, “The Build Generation,” reflects the event’s goal to recruit and train women volunteers, as well as welcome the next generation of Habitat Women Builders – young women, ages 18-24 – to support Habitat’s mission to create affordable housing.

Lowe’s has committed more than $1.3 million to the 2012 National Women Build Week in support of 275 participating affiliates. Over the years, Lowe’s has donated nearly $40 million to help Habitat for Humanity build homes across the country.
