Space to Grow Women’s Build Team

Posted by gmoorman On April - 16 - 2012ADD COMMENTS

Space to Grow, is partnering with the Habitat for Humanity of Greater Orlando for this Year’s “National Build Week” (May 7-12, 2012).  Last year 375 Central Florida women volunteered over 2,500 hours and raised over $100,000 to fully fund this year they are expecting even more.

We formed a Space to Grow Women’s Build team to show our commitment to doing our part to take action against poverty-level housing conditions. The Mother’s Day timeframe was selected for its significance to many volunteers, as families with children make up a staggering number of those in need of adequate housing. More than 12 million children-one in six-live in poverty housing in the United States alone. To date, Women Build crews have built more than 1,800 Habitat homes nationwide. In honor of all of our MOMS, we commit to being a part of the solution!

Please join us as we help raise the money needed to build homes for deserving families here in Central Florida. How can you help: 1) Sign up for the STG team and raise $500 for the supplies needed to buy a home and then come build one with us (volunteer shift is only four hours)!!!!!, or 2) donate to the STG team to help us raise money to fully fund a new home for a family in need!!
