On April 28, more than 50 volunteers joined San Diego Habitat for Humanity to frame a house under the lights in a Lowe’s parking lot in Carlsbad, CA. Lowe’s and local Habitat organizations hosted Girls’ Night Out events in 10 cities: Atlanta, Austin, Cincinnati, Dallas/Ft. Worth, Indianapolis, Miami-Ft. Lauderdale, Philadelphia, Raleigh-Durham, San Diego and Seattle-Tacoma. More than 400 women, including Lowe’s Heroes employee volunteers, built alongside Habitat homeowner families at the Girls’ Night Out evening build events, helping to kick off Habitat for Humanity’s National Women Build Week.

Habitat’s National Women Build Week brought together more than 17,000 women volunteers nationwide from April 30 to May 8 to lend their hands and skills to help 650 families build strength and stability through shelter. National Women Build Week drives momentum toward the goal Habitat for Humanity and Lowe’s launched this year to help build or repair 1,000 homes by the holidays.

Lowe’s donated $2 million to Habitat’s 2016 National Women Build Week and provided the support of Lowe’s Heroes employee volunteers to more than 300 Habitat locations hosting National Women Build Week activities this year.
