Greater Fox Cities Area Habitat for Humanity, a leader in affordable housing solutions, is celebrating women with its Women’s Build wall raising event on Wednesday, August 3 at 10 a.m. in Appleton at 2322 W. Prospect Avenue (map). This event is a chance to celebrate the volunteers, sponsors and staff who are helping to build this home. This year’s homeowner is Shaunna Toohey. Shaunna is a single mother of a 10-year-old son.
Shaunna spent over a year going through the Habitat for Humanity Homebuyer Program, learning how to care for a home both physically and financially. After more than 300 hours of sweat equity, Shaunna will also be helping with the building of her new home. This home will be right next to the first-ever Fox Cities Habitat Women’s Build recipient, Zorica Kravic.
