Women Build a Success!

What amazing support from everyone in the community that supported our Annual Women Build in Lowell! We are so grateful for every volunteer who worked tirelessly on this home; every lunch donation which nourished the crew each day; the monetary donations which help offset the cost of building; and all of the donated materials to build this Habitat Home. We had so much fun working with each and every Team and can’t wait to begin planning this again for next year! Anyone wanting a jump on raising funds for Women Build 2018, email me for info. See everyone at the Home Dedication!

The month of July has been busy with our Woman Build in Lowell.  I want to thank Barb Anderson and Franciscan Community for their support of this project.  It was great to see one of their employees be surrounded by her coworkers, in being assured that they will help her with her swear equity hours for her new Habitat home.  What an awesome experience it is to be able to help someone else.

 

We should be finished with the house in the next couple of months and will let everyone know when we have the dedication.  Stay tuned.
