Have you even wondered what it would be like to build a house? Most importantly, have you ever wondered what it would be lke to build a house for a family in need and knowing at the end of the day, you yes YOU have provided a roof over their head? The time has come to make that dream alive. You have the power to change your community and I have the perfect opportunity for you to trade those heels in for a pink hammer and get started.
Habitat Detroit is now looking for female volunteers to help with this year’s Women Build project. Women Build brings together women from all walks of life to address the housing crisis facing millions of women and children worldwide. It is a national initiative of Habitat for Humanity and Women Build weeks that will be occurring all over the country the week of May 5-12, 2012. The Detroit event is especially unique because the Detroit chapter will be hosting a Girls Night Out event for all of the volunteers involved on Friday, May 4, 2012.
The Girls Night Out Women Build Kick Off event will include dinner catered by Slows BBQ and Taste Love Cupcakes in Royal Oak (who was just featured on TLC’s Cupcake Wars), fun DIY ideas, and a panel discussion featuring accomplished metro-Detroit women talking about how they’ve achieved success and how they balance work and life. I will be on the panel that evening and I encourage you all to volunteer and attend. It’s going to be a fantastic time!
The volunteers who call and sign up are all on a first-come first-serve basis. Experience and construction skills are not necessary, many women without experience volunteer for the Women Build sites and still make a great impact. Training and guidence will be provided.
The location for this year’s Habitat Detroit Women Build project will be at the
Morningside Commons Neighborhood on Detroit’s east side starting Saturday, May 5th – Saturday, May 12th. The build times are 8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
