WCWP Helps Sponsor WE Build Habitat For Humanity

Last year I had the great fortune of helping the San Fernando Valley Green Building Task Force (A subcommittee of the SFV Green Team) on a volunteer build for Habitat for Humanity in Pacoima, CA. It was truly a memorable experience of working together as a group for an important cause … creating homes for those in need and building community. One of the added benefits of the day was I learned how to build a fence with a few other women and really enjoyed the sense of accomplishment of the finished product.

Then in January I met Donna Deutchman the Executive Director/CEO for local Habitat For Humanity projects on a conference call. When Donna told me about one of the projects she was working on – a Women’s Empowerment Build, I knew right away it was something that WCWP would like to help sponsor. It was a project dedicated to empowering women - a three-day build that would take place on May 23, 24 and 25, 2010.
