West Orange Women Build 2017

Friday, March 17, 2017


About Women Build: Habitat for Humanity’s National Women Build Week is an annual weeklong event created by Habitat’s Women Build program that invites women to fundraise and devote at least one day to build while helping families build strength, stability and self-reliance through shelter. The week is meant to spotlight the homeownership challenges faced by women. National Women Build Week is held the week leading up to Mother’s Day.

All donations to this event support your local West Orange Habitat for Humanity.

West Orange Habitat For Humanity launches inaugural 25 Strong West Orange Women Build event with a goal of $25,000! Hosting the event during this week reinforces the message that every woman can make a difference through learning and using construction skills. More than 98,000 women from all 50 states have volunteered at the nine previous National Women Build Week events.
