Habitat For Humanity Dedicates Building Days To Women
Lethbridge: Habitat for Humanity is promoting the involvement of women in the construction of this year's build site. June 19th and 20th will be dedicated specifically to women volunteers.
"The women's build has been a Habitat initiative across the country and it's usually the larger affiliates that do it. The women build an entire house, quite often from the design up to the finishing; because we're smaller and only doing one house a year, we set aside two days for the women's build. So this is a first for us." said Operations Manager, Bill Fox.
Fox adds usually during regular building days, half of the volunteer are men and the other half our women.
"It's not a matter of excluding men, but including women. It just gives them an opportunity to work on the house and learn some new skills with no pressure." sais Fox.
Fox says they're looking for 10-12 volunteers each day. Spots are still available for Thursday's build. Any interested ladies can contact the local chapter at 403-327-6612 or go to www.habitatlethbridge.ca
