3/24/12: Lowe’s Clinic-Women Build

On March 24th, our Habitat family, Board Members and Habitat staff met at the Lowe’s on 12400 Day Street in Moreno Valley for a Women Build clinic. Moreno Valley Lowe’s staff Matt & Tony used the clinic to teach safety when using hand and power tools and installing roof shingles. All three ladies from the Dominguez family attended to prepare themselves for Women Build on May 12th. Joining the Dominguez girls  were Habitat Riverside Executive Director Karin Roberts, Board of Director Members Debi Bagley and Barbara Purvis.

Women Build brings together women from all walks of life to address the housing crisis facing millions. Magdalena Dominguez, a single mother of 4, is excited to involve herself and her daughters in such an empowering event.

National Women Build Week challenges women to devote at least one day to the effort to eliminate poverty housing. Women make a difference in their communities by building homes and raising awareness of local housing needs. The event is typically held the week leading up to Mother’s Day. These dates are significant to many volunteers, as families with children make up a staggering number of those in need of adequate housing.

Lowe’s is a major sponsor and underwriter of Women Build and has generously supported our efforts for many years. Lowe’s sponsors National Women Build Week each year, provides competitive grant opportunities and offers free how-to clinics for U.S. Women Build affiliates. Lowe’s is committing more than $1.3 million to National Women Build Week 2011. They are also providing $5,000 Lowe’s store gift cards and event support materials to more than 250 Habitat affiliates.
