Almost Heaven Habitat for Humanity will gather over 50 local volunteers to help build the walls for two homes in Greenbrier County as part of National Women Build Week.
Now in its 11th year, National Women Build Week, an initiative created by Habitat for Humanity and Lowe’s, has brought together more than 117,000 all-women construction volunteers to build or repair more than 4,500 homes. 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. Locally, the event is set for May 5, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the State Fair of West Virginia Ag Barn and is open to local volunteers, Lowe’s Hero’s, Partner Families, and Media.
Almost Heaven Habitat for Humanity has worked for over 25 years in partnership with low-income families in Eastern West Virginia. Our mission is to eliminate substandard poverty housing in Greenbrier County and to make safe, decent, affordable housing a matter of conscience and action. Almost Heaven Habitat builds not only houses, but also relationships and a sense of community through our partner families and volunteers who work together in equal partnership.
Lowe’s, a Fortune 50 home improvement company, has a 60-year legacy of supporting the communities it serves through programs that focus on K-12 public education and community improvement projects. In the past decade, Lowe’s and the Lowe’s Charitable and Educational Foundation together have contributed more than $300 million to these efforts, and for more than two decades Lowe’s Heroes volunteers have donated their time to make our communities better places to live.
