Women help build home for Habitat’s National Women Help Build Week

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (WDEF)- Habitat for Humanity celebrated their annual week-long event National Women Build week by building another home in Alton Park for a deserving family.

A mother and her children will move into this home once it’s complete.

This Women build program invites women to devote at least to a project like this one and spotlight the home-ownership challenges faced by women.

News 12 Now spoke with Meredith Mickel of Lowe’s about what this project means to them.

Mickel says, “Impact somebody in their children so they can come in here and make memories and that is just a great feeling and I know Lowe’s is so proud to be a part of that”

Habitat for Humanity also spoke about this national initiative.

“They are selling power to realize that women can do anything they set their minds to even things that are traditionally male oriented,” said Dominique Brandt with Habitat.

National Women Build Week is held the week leading up to Mother’s Day.

Lowe’s donated nearly $2 million dollars and volunteer support.

More than 98,000 women from all 50 states have volunteered at the nine previous National Women Build.
