Women Build Week, March 8-15

Strong Women Build Strong Communities! March 8-15 we are focusing on WOMEN who BUILD!
Why Support WOMEN BUILD?
Now more than ever, local families who need a safe and affordable home are counting on you. With the coronavirus outbreak, families locally are facing additional economic hardship from lost wages or layoffs. WOMEN BUILD provides the opportunity to take the proactive step in helping families improve their living situation. Many of our partner families include single moms who work hard to support their families, but the cost of homeownership leaves them making impossible choices between healthy food, medicine, transportation, and a safe, affordable home. The unprecedented coronavirus crisis makes this especially difficult.
WOMEN BUILD is a partnership between Habitat for Humanity and Lowe's Home Improvement that brings people from all walks of life together to make a positive impact by sharing their story with friends, family and colleagues to raise money so local families can achieve a more stable and secure future. Habitat's 2021 WOMEN BUILD Week is March 8-15th. We will be highlighting female staff, Board members, volunteers, and even some local businesses/leaders who are uplifting the Mahoning Valley.
How can you help right now?
It takes everyone, and it starts with you. WOMEN BUILD is structured as part fundraising & part building. Our construction volunteer shifts are currently closed due to Covid, but once it is safe to do so, they will re-open. For volunteer opportunities, contact Alyssa Osborne at aosborne@hfhmv.org.
All fundraising takes place on our secure on-line platform: HERE
Every amount matters, large or small! If you would like to send a donation in the mail, please mail checks payable to Habitat for Humanity of Mahoning Valley to 1919 E. Midlothian Blvd, Youngstown, OH 44502. For sponsorship or donation questions, please contact Kristina Nicholas at knicholas@hfhmv.org.
