Women Build event on tap at Sisters Habitat
Last updated 4/25/2023 at 3:49pm
Sisters Habitat for Humanity will be hosting its annual Women Build volunteer event Thursday, May 11 through Saturday, May 13.
This event provides the opportunity for local women to take part in constructing a Habitat home. No experience is necessary. Volunteers work under the guidance of construction professionals, alongside other volunteers, and with future Habitat homeowners.
This Habitat tradition occurs around Mother’s Day each year. Since 1991, Women Build volunteers have come together to build a stronger community. It’s a great way to learn new skills and improve existing skills while enjoying a rewarding experience.
There will be two shifts to choose from each day: 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and 12:30 p.m. to 4 p.m. The two shifts will join together for lunch at 12:30 p.m.
An optional one-hour equipment and tools training event will be held on Saturday, May 6, from 10 to 11 a.m. at 314 N. Desert Rose Loop, in Sisters.
A mandatory orientation will be held on Wednesday evening, May 10, at 6 p.m. at the Sisters Fire District’s Community Hall.
Preregistration to participate in Women Build is required. Call Sisters Habitat for Humanity’s office at 541-549-1193 for more information.
