The purpose of Women Build is to raise awareness of the need for affordable housing in our community, empower women, and to raise funds for Habitat Alamance. Habitat’s Women Build in Alamance County started as a grassroots effort. We encourage all individuals, schools, clubs, sororities, and congregations to form a team of 6-10 individuals.
To help us with the fundraising aspect of the build, we ask each Grassroots Team to commit to raising at least $2,500 for the Women Build program. Habitat will provide a personal fundraising page for your teams’ use so you can solicit friends and family to donate to Habitat and support your team. Our team build days (both Corporate and Grassroots) will be May 2, 3, 14-31, June 1-8 (not including Memorial Weekend). Our work days are from 8am-11:30am each day, Tue-Sat. You’ll enjoy a day on the job site for you and your friends plus the following:
- Team name on all signage for the build (includes clinics & registration)
- Team name on build T-shirts
- Dedicated shift with free registration for group of 6-10 volunteers & T-shirts for each.
- Catered lunch on the job site with a program by a Habitat homeowner
