This year Pikes Peak Habitat for Humanity celebrated National Women Build Week 2018 with build days scheduled on May 5 (kick-off day for Lowe's, our national partner) and May 10-12. Habitat and Lowe’s encourage all women to volunteer - no construction skills or experience is necessary.
National Women Build Week, a nationwide initiative created by Habitat for Humanity and Lowe’s in 2008, has brought together more than 117,000 all-women construction volunteers to build or repair homes with nearly 5,000 families over the past 10 years. This year, Lowe’s donated nearly $2 million to Habitat for Humanity to support the 2018 National Women Build Week, which is set to take place in 300 communities nationwide.

In 2008 Lowe’s helped launch National Women Build Week, an annual week-long event that invites women to devote at least one day to help families build strength, stability and independence through housing. Lowe's also empowers Women Build through the help of their employee volunteers Lowe’s Heroes, and conducts how-to clinics at stores to teach volunteers construction skills so they can feel equipped to take part in the builds.
Now in its 11th year, National Women Build Week, an initiative created by Habitat for Humanity and Lowe’s, has brought together more than 117,000 all-women construction volunteers to build or repair more than 4,500 homes. This year, Lowe’s donated nearly $2 million to Habitat for Humanity to support the 2018 National Women Build Week, which is set to take place in 300 communities nationwide.
