Women Build 2015

wb hfhmgc logoHabitat for Humanity of the Mississippi Gulf Coast’s 2015 Women Build event is our 8th annual event. It will bring together Mississippi Gulf Coast area women as they grab their hammers and volunteer on Habitat for Humanity of the Mississippi Gulf Coast’s job site!

Habitat will have teams working at our site in Ocean Springs (nicknamed the “Women Build House”) throughout the month of October.  We will provide all tools, hardhats, a t-shirt as well as some other fun giveaways.  Your team will select a construction work date to be on the Ocean Springs construction site.  Remember, construction or home improvement experience isn’t necessary for you or your team members.  But you should note that HFHMGC will be hosting a “How To” workshop at the Lowe’s on Hwy 49 on October 12th titled “How to Properly and Safely Use Power Tools”.  You and your team members are encouraged to attend so you will feel more at ease working with power tools.

We are asking each volunteer to raise $350, which will go towards a house sponsorship for the Women Build House. We will set up a page for each team and each team member that can be sent out via email and social media. We will have prizes for the team with the highest donation and the individual with the highest donation.  You are encouraged to find a sponsor for your team, or to see if your employer or another business will provide a matching donation for your team. You can also utilize different fundraising tactics such as a bake sale or enlisting the support of a local business (such as Chic-fil-a or Newk’s).
