Women across the Cape Fear Region fastened their tool belts and picked up their hammers to help a local family build the home they have been waiting for.
During the week of May 5th-12th, over 200 women divided into teams to build a home for a local mother and her two children in New Hanover County. This massive team effort was a part of “National Women Build Week”, a partnership initiative by Habitat for Humanity and Lowe’s Home Improvement. Throughout the fundraising campaign, donors had the opportunity to donate in honor of a strong woman in their life.
WWAY was on hand to cover the local build organized by Cape Fear Habitat for Humanity.
In support of these efforts, Jeff Gordon Chevrolet donated refreshments for the volunteer teams and provided some helping hands for the first build day of the week.
National Women Build Week took place in over 300 communities across the country, timed to line up with the Mother’s Day holiday. Lowe’s Home Improvement has donated over $2 million dollars to the growing initiative.
