Women Build

Please join us for our Women's Weeks. Women Build is an initiative that allows women the opportunity to be on the construction site learning building skills for a day, something they might normally shy away from. No experience is necessary!

This fundraising initiative allows women to volunteer their time on site for a registration fee of $50, and through raising pledge money. If $100 in pledges is raised, the fee will be waived. $200 in pledges will enter the participant in a draw for fabulous prizes!

We also need corporate sponsors, if you can't be onsite why not be a sponsor? Not only are there monetary sponsorship opportunities but we need lunch sponsors as well.

Visit our Facebook page, our website: http://www.habitatpeh.org or call 613-969-7526 for more details!
