Week of May 20
Habitat for Humanity Women Build is part of a global movement that brings women together in a shared mission to help families in need of a decent place to call home. By bringing women together to swing hammers and fundraise, Women Build promotes empowerment, solidarity, learning, and pride in our communities.

Since 2009, Habitat for Humanity of Greater Lowell Women Build events have rallied almost 500 women to raise more than $80K, and help to build 23 homes. This year’s goal is to engage an additional 100 women and fundraise $25K for our two current home builds in Lowell. Residents can visit the campaign page to make a donation to help us eliminate substandard housing in Northern Middlesex County. https://fundrazr.com/HFHGLWomenBuild2019
