Construction kicks off on the 2020 Women Build house!
Women Build is back on the construction sites and working on the 16th Women Build house! This year's new home is being built at 423 Jay Street and will be a two-story, five-bedroom home that will be purchased by a hard-working Habitat family. (more on the family soon!)
The following photos were taken during the first week of construction (July 1-9), and as you can see we are already making great progress!
Women Build is currently recruiting individuals and teams to help build this house. Learn how to get involved at rochesterhabitat.org/womenbuild
Women Build 2020 Fundraising Campaign kicks into full gear
The Women Build 2020 fundraising campaign has a different look this year. Large in-person events are much less likely to happen this year, so we need to rely more on creative fundraising – including small donations.
To help illustrate how impactful each donation is, we have compiled a “catalog” of some common materials that we use in building the Women Build house.
We have included example items in several donation ranges for you to consider. These are suggestions to help guide your donation, but you can always donate any amount that is comfortable for you.
Take a look at the suggested amounts below, and go to this link to choose your item or to make a general donation: https://give.rochesterhabitat.org/ge/wbfundraising
Or send a check, with Women Build in the memo line to:
Flower City Habitat for Humanity
Attn: Women Build
755 Culver Road
Rochester NY 14609
We know that the global pandemic has had adverse effects on everyone. Please know that we will welcome donations in any amount. $5 and $10 gifts will help immensely. Your gift in any amount will help us buy all of the necessary construction materials and will enable Women Build teams to construct a lovely, safe, energy-efficient home for a hard-working family. We thank you for your support and generosity!
Our goal for our 2020 house at 423 Jay Street is $75,000. As of July 1, we have raised over $29,000 toward this goal.
