GREENVILLE– Habitat for Humanity’s Women’s Build Day is a time for women to join together to make a difference.

Volunteers stepped up during last year’s Women’s Build Day to help build a home for a local family.

Women’s Build Day will take place from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday at 704 N. Fifth St., according to Mo Beach, executive director for Montcalm County Habitat for Humanity.
“This will be a wall raising of the future home for Brandon and Tristan Augustine and their son Gideon,” Beach said. “It is a day set aside for women to build together.”
The house is being built for the Augustines, who met all the requirements for the program.
Beach said requirements include having a need for housing, an ability to pay a zero-interest mortgage and a willingness to partner with Habitat for Humanity.
The event will be split into two shifts, the first being from 9 a.m. until noon and the second from 1 to 4 p.m. A brown bag lunch will be provided.
All women between the ages of 18 and 99 are able to participate, she said.
Beach said the Women’s Build Day is being sponsored by Montcalm County Habitat for Humanity and Lowe’s Home Improvement.
“For one week every year, usually the week leading up to Mother’s Day, women across the country join together to create affordable houses,” Beach said.
