Midcoast Habitat for Humanity and Lowe’s call on women across Knox County, Maine to get involved in their community during National Women Build Week 2018

Rockport, Maine (May 8- 12, 2018) – For the 11th year, Habitat for Humanity and Lowe’s are engaging women nationwide to work together to build Habitat homes during this year’s National Women Build Week from May 8-12.  In preparation for the build week, Midcoast Habitat for Humanity and Lowe’s are asking women to get involved by signing up to volunteer and build.

On May 8th, local volunteers will be working on our current affordable housing construction project in Rockland, Maine.

National Women Build Week, a nationwide initiative created by Habitat for Humanity and Lowe’s in 2008, has brought together more than 117,000 all-women construction volunteers to build or repair homes with nearly 5,000 families over the past 10 years. This year, Lowe’s donated nearly $2 million to Habitat for Humanity to support the 2018 National Women Build Week, which is set to take place in 300 communities nationwide.

Habitat and Lowe’s encourage all women to volunteer—no construction skills or experience in Habitat builds necessary. To learn more about National Women Build Week, visit
