Habitat To Host Women Build Event

The Habitat for Humanity Women Build is coming to Kosciusko County this summer.

This is a time for women to come together, volunteer on the build site and support other women who are going through the Habitat homeownership program.

“A fair amount of our families are single mothers, grandmothers or working mothers who go the extra mile to support their family,” said Ben Logan, executive director. “They applied for Habitat’s program to add stability into their family’s life, and it is amazing to see the women in this community support them through the process.”

From Monday to June 25, teams of women will occupy the current Habitat build site in Warsaw. Habitat has also gained support from local businesses who have chosen to sponsor this event, such as Lake City Bank.

“We rely on the strength of women, who make up nearly 73%  of our Lake City Bank team members, and we are proud to be part of Habitat for Humanity of Kosciusko County’s Women Build event,” said Kristin L. Pruitt, executive vice president, chief administrative officer.

Slots have filled up fast, although there is still room for 10 individuals looking to participate on June 25 from 8 a.m. to noon. If any women are interested in joining in on the fun, contact the Habitat office at 574-269-4104. Registration is $25 per person.

Anyone looking to throw in their financial support for this build should visit Habitat’s website at kosciuskohabitat.org/give. One hundred percent of all gifts will go toward the current build in Warsaw.

Sponsors of Habitat’s 2022 Women Build include Lake City Bank, SYM Financial Advisors, Kosciusko Board of Realtors, Flexaust, The RGroup Real Estate and Builders’ Mart.
