National Women Build Week, held April 30 through May 7, challenges women to devote at least one day to building simple, decent and affordable housing in their local communities. More than 62,000 women from all 50 states have volunteered in previous years.

“We are excited to participate in National Women Build Week,” said Karen Lawler, Women Build committee chair of Stillwater Habitat. “This is a great opportunity for women of all skill levels to come together to help a family in need of better housing.”

 Lowe’s helped launch National Women Build Week in 2008, and each year provides the support of Lowe’s Heroes employee volunteers and conducts how-to clinics at stores to teach volunteers construction skills. This year, Lowe’s contributed nearly $2 million to National Women Build Week. Since its partnership began in 2003, Lowe’s has committed more than $63 million to Habitat and helped nearly 4,000 families improve their living conditions.

 Lowe’s and Habitat invite men and women across America to help make the dream of home ownership a reality for a family in their community – no construction skills are necessary. To volunteer or donate to this project, call 405-377-0403 ext 2 or email info@stillwaterhabitat.org. For more information on National Women Build Week, visit Habitat.org/wb
