|Women Build »|
Lots of planning has been going on behind the scenes for a couple of months now making sure that all of the usual Women Build "perks" will be in place to support our wonderful volunteers and crew chiefs! We've got a new logo this year and some great new t-shirts that you're going to love. And of course, there will be plenty of great food, lots of goodies, ice cold Aquafina & Pepsi products, and the wonderful friendship and spirit that magically happens around our annual Women Build project!
Habitat for Humanity of South Collin County’s annual Women Build is set to kick off Friday, September 11th, at 1109 H Avenue in the historic Douglass community of Plano. An event planned for framing day will focus on honoring the families who lost loved ones on September 11, 2001, recognizing the women who protect and support our community. On hand to mark the special significance of the occasion will be state and local officials, corporate representative from the area, along with local women police officers, firefighters, military personnel, and many other local dignitaries from throughout our service area. The event will end as we join together with a deserving South Collin County family to drive the first nail into the new home that will provide them with a safe and secure future.
This year’s major sponsors include First Preston Management Inc. and PepsiCo Business Solutions Group. If you or your organization would like to join them in becoming a sponsor for this home, either through funding or in-kind donations of materials or services, please contact our board president and Women Build chairperson, Patti Fisk, at [ email ] or Habitat Development Director Jill Smola at [ email ] or at 972-398-0634 x102.

Women Build is Habitat’s volunteer program for women who want to learn construction skills and make a difference by building homes and communities.
Women Build projects are regularly held by Habitat affiliates across the United States, and by Habitat organizations around the world. Women at these builds have furthered Habitat’s home-building mission by helping to construct more than 1,500 houses.
