Greater Fox Cities Area Habitat for Humanity, a leader in affordable housing solutions, is putting the spotlight on women and girls in construction while helping a family in need with its annual Women’s Build event on Thursday, August 3 at 10:30 a.m. in Appleton at 2322½ West Prospect Avenue (map).

“The Women’s Build is such a great event because it brings together volunteers, sponsors and staff along with the families Habitat works with in the Fox Cities,” explained John Weyenberg, president and CEO of Greater Fox Cities Area Habitat for Humanity. “This event focuses on highlighting women in the construction field and showcases how much women can bring to the construction trades.”
