“Women Build” Panel Build
Saturday, March 7, 2020, 9am – 3pm
Where: Habitat for Humanity, 850 Mercury Blvd., Murfreesboro, TN
We’ll build all of the walls, and a temporary Habitat “house”, in just 5 hours!! Volunteers will sign up for 1 1/2 hour shifts and we’ll have 5 shifts of 20 volunteers = about 100 people + a set-up team and “deconstruction” crew plus opportunities for others to be involved.
The walls will be built for Melody’s house, which will be in the “Spring/Summer of 2020 and one of the first houses in our new Legacy Pointe subdivision! This will also be the “People Who Serve” Build featuring veterans, emergency personnel plus the police Department, Rutherford County Sheriff’s Dept., and Murfreesboro Fire & Rescue. Melody is a nurse.
Thank you to our sponsors!

Since 1991, Women Build volunteers from all walks of life have come together to build stronger, safer communities.
Though our neighborhoods are comprised largely of women and children, they are also the population’s most likely to be affected by poor living conditions. Our Women Build events provide the opportunity for women to take a proactive step in serving their communities.
Women Build opportunities are available across the U.S., and any woman who wants to learn how to build and construct a home is invited to join us. No experience is necessary. Volunteers work under the guidance of construction professionals, and also alongside other volunteers and future Habitat homeowners. Whether you are learning new skills or simply adding a few to your tool belt, this is a rewarding experience for all involved, and improves the community that you share.
Women Build is also a terrific way to involve your friends and family of all ages in crucial work with a lasting impact. Women helping women sends a positive and powerful message. You can also come alone, and make new friends. The atmosphere is collaborative and friendly.
