Habitat for Humanity of Lake-Sumter and Lowe’s Heroes are celebrating the 10th annual National Women Build Week by framing the components of a new affordable home from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Friday at 301 Hazel St., Wildwood.
The general public can get involved, too, by calling Danielle Stroud at Habitat, 352-630-3318.
Lowe’s helped launch National Women Build Week in 2008 to empower women to advocate for affordable housing and spotlight the homeownership challenges faced by many people. This year, more than 17,000 women including Lowe’s Heroes volunteers from across the country, are expected to volunteer at construction sites as part of Habitat’s 2017 National Women Build Week.
Lowe’s donated $2 million to Habitat’s 2017 National Women Build Week and will provide the support of Lowe’s Heroes employee volunteers to more than 300 Habitat locations hosting National Women Build Week activities this year.
