It’s that time of year again!!! With the beginning of Summer upon us, we at Habitat for Humanity of Genesee County are incredibly excited to begin our annual fundraiser for our biggest event of the year. Women Build 2019 will take place on Saturday, August 3 from 9 am to 3 pm at Northgate FMC’s South Campus, located at 350 Bank Street in Batavia, New York.
Last year, more than 15,000 women volunteered at Habitat for Humanity construction sites across the country. Sixty women volunteered locally at Habitat’s most recently dedicated home located at 4961 East Main Street in Batavia.
This year women will work in teams under the supervision of a construction leader to build the framework for Habitat’s newest home, which will be located at 45 Clifton Avenue in Batavia. The walls that are built on Northgate’s South Campus will be transported to the home site at a later date. No experience is needed to volunteer and all necessary safety and personal protective equipment will be provided.
Through the annual Women Build event, we can train and equip women to work more effectively, in turn helping us serve more families. Habitat’s Women Build volunteers come together from all walks of life to help build stronger, safer communities and take a proactive step in serving their communities. Together, we can change lives, champion independence, and help our community provide safe and affordable shelter.
Beyond individual and group participation at the construction site, we will also look to raise our annual goal of $5,000 to help finance construction costs for the Women Build event and future Habitat home construction projects. We look for the community’s support of our mission which provides decent and affordable shelter for individuals and families in our community that need a hand-up, never a hand-out.
