Habitat for Humanity of Bucks County Calls for Women in Bucks County to get involved during National Women Build Week 2018

For the 11th year, Habitat for Humanity and Lowe's are engaging women nationwide to work together to build Habitat homes during this year's National Women Build Week from May 5-13. In preparation for the build week, Habitat Bucks and Lowe's are asking women to get involved by signing up to volunteer and build.

"We're excited to partner with Lowe's to educate, inspire and empower women to advocate for housing solutions, and help Habitat homeowners by building or improving an affordable place they can call home," said Florence Kawoczka, Executive Director of Habitat Bucks. "We want to engage women of all skill levels to join their friends, families and neighbors to build up their communities. And through volunteering, women will gain invaluable skills to bring back and use in their everyday life."

"Lowe's is in the business of helping people improve and maintain their homes," said James Frison, Lowe's Director of Community Relations. "Lowe's Heroes have helped build hundreds of Habitat homes across the country and National Women Build Week is another chance for Lowe's to reinforce our long-standing commitment to Habitat, Women Build and communities where our employees and customers live and work.

On May 9-12 local volunteers will be fully renovating a three bedroom home in Levittown. Anyone interested in building should email volunteer@habitatbucks.org

National Women Build Week, a nationwide initiative created by Habitat for Humanity and Lowe's in 2008, has brought together more than 117,000 all-women construction volunteers to build or repair homes with nearly 5,000 families over the past 10 years. This year, Lowe's donated nearly $2 million to Habitat for Humanity to support the 2018 National Women Build Week, which is set to take place in 300 communities nationwide.

Habitat and Lowe's encourage all women to volunteer—no construction skills or experience in Habitat builds necessary.
