August 4th - August 8th
Since 1991, Habitat for Humanity has hosted an annual Women Build. Women Build opportunities are available across the United States. These builds bring women in the community together to promote the involvement of women in the construction industry while helping Habitat partner families get one step closer to homeownership. The Women Build works to recruit, nurture, and train women in construction. This is an opportunity for women to proactively engage, and make a tangible impact in Sheridan County. In a collaborative and friendly atmosphere this build sends the positive and powerful message of, "women helping women."
Anyone (16+) is invited to participate, no previous construction experience or knowledge is required. Volunteers will work along side a professional construction supervisor, and Habitat partner families. Due to COVID-19 and social distancing practices we have decided to limit volunteer groups to 5 volunteers at a time. Thus, one women build group will build in the morning, and the other in the afternoon, BUT no worries everyone will still get a chance to participate because this event will last for 5 days! This also gives your team more dates to choose from! (*See below for the full list of COVID-19 safety precautions)
Are you ready to build with us?
Participants are encouraged to raise $100, however, any donation is welcome. All proceeds directly benefit Habitat programs in Sheridan. Funds are due by the end of the build day (August 8th, 2020**).
