Women Build!

Last Saturday I had the pleasure of volunteering for Habitat 4 Humanity, Women Build.  It’s not the first time I have worked on a Habitat house and it won’t be the last.  I always have fun and learn a lot!

Women Build is Habitat’s volunteer program for women who want to make a difference and learn valuable construction skills while they’re at it.

No skills, no problem! Many women come to women build sites with no construction skills at all and leave experts! I’ll never forget the first time I volunteered.  I spent most of the day measuring and cutting baseboards, something I had never done before.  When I showed up the following week I was the baseboard foreman and in charge of teaching a group of new volunteers what to do!

On Saturday, we had enough volunteers to have several crews working on multiple tasks.   It was a fun day and I can’t wait to go back.
