Women Build Events

National Women Build Week (NWBW)

The 2018 NWBW is May 5-13. In Evansville, there will be a Build Day on Wednesday, May 9, from 7:30-2:30 p.m. ... we need 50 volunteers to come out and help build a home for a local family! Your support will help us be eligible for a $5,000 Lowe's grant. Additionally, there will be a how-to painting workshop held at Lowe's West on Saturday, May 5, from 10-11 a.m. Call Mariah at 812-423-5623 ext. 21 for more info!

Habitat for Humanity’s National Women Build Week is an annual weeklong event created by Habitat’s Women Build program in partnership with Lowe’s. The program invites women to devote at least one day to help families build strength, stability and independence through housing. 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 with Lowe’s generously donating nearly $2 million dollars and volunteer support. 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.
