Habitat For Humanity Hosts Women Build Week

By  | 

Women from across Lincoln came out to help a single mom. Habitat for Humanity's Women Build Week is a national event. Women of all ages learn the ins and outs of construction, while helping someone in need.

Molly and her daughter Ava will move into a brand new home this year, thanks to the generosity of Habitat for Humanity, Lowe's, and around fifty volunteers, three quarters of which were women.

On Saturday afternoon volunteers built the foundation and floor boards for the new home. Miss Southeast Nebraska also lent a hand. Volunteers give their time because they believe it's a cause that's bigger than themselves.

"Every time we come out here it's fun, it's happy. I get goosebumps. I don't care if the sun's shining, I get goosebumps. So it's healthy on your spirit, and your soul, and it's healthy on your heart and you get some good exercise," says Michelle Williamson -, a volunteer Coordinator.

The construction will continue this week.
