Habitat for Humanity of Taos invites women to build
Women of Taos and the surrounding area are invited to volunteer May 9 and 10 during Habitat for Humanity International’s Seventh Annual National Women Build Week.
Habitat for Humanity of Taos is one of more than 300 Habitat affiliates nationwide hosting Women Build projects with the support of Lowe’s, Habitat’s longtime partner in the event.
National Women Build Week, held May 3-11, challenges women to devote at least one day to building simple, decent and affordable housing in their local communities. More than 52,000 women volunteers from all 50 states have participated in previous years.
“We are excited to participate in National Women Build Week,” said Cynthia Arvidson, executive director of Habitat for Humanity of Taos, in a press release. “This is a great opportunity for women of all skill levels to come together to help a family in need.”
To date, women volunteers have helped construct more than 2,200 Habitat houses nationwide. Locally, Habitat for Humanity of Taos has built 28 homes for Taos families and has enjoyed the help of countless women of all ages and backgrounds.
No construction skills or tools are necessary. This is a free event and open to women of all ages 16 to 116.
