Gloucester County Habitat for Humanity and Local Women Build Home During National Women Build WeekLast Edited:
This week is Habitat for Humanity's annual National Women Build Week, and to celebrate, women in Gloucester County did just that.
On Tuesday, May 8th, the Gloucester County Habitat for Humanity, Lowe's, and local women volunteers came together in Woodbury for the annual event to help build a home for a family in need.
National Women Build Week encourages women nationwide to devote at least one day to help build decent and affordable housing in their communities to help give every family a shot at having a safe place to rest their heads.
"We actually want to empower women through homeownership and so that's what this build is all about empowering women by showing what we can do, our strength, our power, and just pressing forward with any obstacle," said Ketty Christian, event and fundraising director at Gloucester County Habitat for Humanity.
The Gloucester County Habitat for Humanity will continue its Women's Build on Wednesday, May 9th, and Thursday, May 10th, from 8 a.m. to noon.
