Spring has sprung (well, almost), and it’s time to start digging! Save the date and join the army of over 200 Women Build Volunteers as we break ground for the foundation of the 10th home sponsored and built by Flower City Habitat for Humanity Women Build volunteers.
Saturday, May 10th at 11:00 AM, 796 Jay Street
The groundbreaking ceremony is the official KICKOFF for the 2014 Women Build project and celebrates the first day of construction. It is the first of three major milestones in the building of the Women Build home. The second and third are the Wall Raising in June and the Dedication in August or September. Each milestone represents a time for celebration and reflection of what’s been accomplished, and what lies ahead. It takes 77 days to build a house, and this is Day #1!! Please come and grab the ceremonial gold shovel and help with the dig, meet the family and other volunteers!
This also means that you and your teams can start signing up NOW for Build Days, with Tuesday, May 13th as the first official build day. Check out the schedule on Volunteer Up!, Flower City Habitat for Humanity’s online volunteer management system.
EVERYONE is WELCOME! We’ll be there rain or shine (and hopefully, no snow!!). Won’t you please join us? Bring your entire team and remember,
GIVE A WOMAN A POWER TOOL AND SHE CAN CHANGE THE WORLD!!
