2016 Dates: April 30 - May 31
Each year in May, Habitat for Humanity of Greater Pittsburgh is one of more than 300 Habitat affiliates nationwide that celebrates National Women Build Week in conjunction with Lowe’s, Habitat’s longtime partner of this event. The goal of Women Build Week is to challenge and empower women from all walks of life to join together in helping us to provide Pittsburgh families with decent, affordable homes and repairs. Women Build is not about excluding men—in fact, men are welcome to participate alongside our women volunteers—but rather it is about celebrating women volunteers and opening new opportunities to them on Habitat jobsites.
This year, Habitat for Humanity of Greater Pittsburgh has been selected to receive a $5,000 grant from Lowe’s to support the repair and rehabilitation of Pittsburgh homes. Historically, we have celebrated National Women Build Week during the first week in May, but due to overwhelming popularity among our volunteers, we've extended the event to last the entire month of May this year! We are looking for corporate sponsors, groups, and individuals to participate in this event. No construction experience is required. Volunteers must be 18 or older to participate. Volunteers will be rewarded with home rehab experience and will have the satisfaction of knowing that they helped to provide hands-on support to a local family.
