On Saturday (3/7/2020) Rutherford County Habitat for Humanity kicked-off International Women Build Week with construction of all wall panels for a home that will be located in the new Legacy Point subdivision off Twin Oak Drive.
National sponsors Lowes and Schneider Electric had representatives there to help coordinate the 9:00AM to 3:00PM event that took place in the parking lot of the Habit for Humanity Office and ReStore at 850 Mercury Boulevard.
Habitat for Humanity Executive Director Terri Shultz told WGNS . . .
Although construction on Legacy Point has not yet begun, this is the fourth home sold there. It is also a new design being offered to Habitat home owners. The home's new owner, Melanie, said . . .
Since 1991, Women Build volunteers from all walks of life have come together to build stronger, safer communities.
Though our neighborhoods are comprised largely of women and children, they are also the population's most likely to be affected by poor living conditions. Our Women Build events provide the opportunity for women to take a proactive step in serving their communities.
Women Build opportunities are available across the U.S., and any woman who wants to learn how to build and construct a home is invited to join us. No experience is necessary. Volunteers work under the guidance of construction professionals, and also alongside other volunteers and future Habitat homeowners. Whether you are learning new skills or simply adding a few to your tool belt, this is a rewarding experience for all involved, and improves the community that you share.
Women Build is also a terrific way to involve your friends and family of all ages in crucial work with a lasting impact. Women helping women sends a positive and powerful message. You can also come alone, and make new friends. The atmosphere is collaborative and friendly.
