Power Women, Power Tools, Power Shop

                 Habitat for Humanity of Martin County is hosting its 2nd annual Women Build kickoff on November 22, 2008 from 1pm – 4pm at Halpatiokee Park in Stuart.  This event will host construction training clinics, a GirlsBuild shopping and GirlsBuild construction area and Power Women shopping area.  Refreshment proceeds will benefit the newly formed Jensen Beach High School Campus Chapter.  Lowe’s, who is the national underwriter of the Women Build program, will host how-to clinics at the kickoff.  Women Build  is a Habitat for Humanity International program that encourages women and girls to have fun and make a difference by building homes and communities. 

                 Plans are underway for a home to be built in Indiantown beginning January 2009. All women are encouraged to attend the kickoff and  participate in the clinics which will give them an advantage when construction begins. 

                 WOMEN BUILD is looking for area women volunteers, for on-site construction, various committees, and financial support.   For further information and to RSVP, individuals can contact Habitat for Humanity of Martin County at 772-223-9940. Martin County has a wealth of hard working, enterprising women and girls we look forward to partnering with on this new project.” said Ebonie Reid, Director of Volunteer Programs for Habitat for Humanity of Martin County.

                 Habitat for Humanity of Martin County (Martin Habitat) is a non-profit, volunteer-driven organization that extends the opportunity to purchase simple, decent, affordable homes to local families who would not otherwise have that chance.  Three key resources are necessary in order to make homeownership a reality for Habitat partner families:  funds, volunteers and advocacy.
