Lowe’s to teach building skills to local volunteers in advance of Habitat for Humanity’s National Women Build Week

Nevada County Habitat for Humanity and longtime national partner Lowe’s are hosting “how-to” construction clinics for women volunteering during the eighth annual National Women Build Week.

Taking place May 2-10, National Women Build Week encourages women across the country to devote at least one day to building simple, decent and affordable housing with Habitat in their local communities.

“We are looking forward to National Women Build Week and the opportunity to engage more women in our work,” said Debbie Arakel, executive director of Nevada County Habitat. “We invite women of all skill levels to join us on the build site and take the clinics hosted by Lowe’s.”



Similar clinics are taking place across the country and are open to women interested in volunteering at a local Women Build site during National Women Build Week.

The local clinic on “How to Safely Use Hand and Power Tools” will be held at 10 a.m. Thursday at Lowe’s of Roseville. A carpool leaves at 9 a.m. from the Alta Sierra Pizza parking lot. RSVP to Tinley at tinley@nchabitat.org or call 530-274-1951.




Lowe’s helped launch National Women Build Week in 2008, and each year provides the support of Lowe’s Heroes employee volunteers and conducts how-to clinics at stores to teach volunteers construction skills.

This year, Lowe’s contributed nearly $2 million to National Women Build Week.
