Habitat for Humanity, Women Build

Last week, CREW Chicago assembled a team of thirteen fundraisers and builders to participate in Habitat for Humanity Chicago’s 2019 Women Build event in the West Pullman neighborhood of Chicago. The annual five-day event brings together over 400 women with the goal of raising $275,000 and advancing the construction of Habitat Chicago’s affordable homes. 

In the months preceding the scheduled build day, the CREW Chicago team earned the title of top fundraiser by collectively raising $23,391 including a $6,000 donation from CREW Chicago’s board of directors. 
Upon arriving on site, the team was tasked with cutting and installing vinyl siding on one of the homes. When weather conditions presented challenges, the team moved indoors where they cut and laid tile flooring in the front entryway and vinyl plank flooring in the bedrooms. The team had the pleasure of working alongside three of the women who will be purchasing the new homes once they are complete. 

The CREW Chicago Women Build team would like to sincerely thank everyone who helped contribute to the strength and stability that homeownership will bring to these women-led families.
