Habitat for Humanity of Suffolk will conclude its annual Women Build Week with a volunteer group-led home construction in Central Islip on Saturday.
Running from May 4 to May 8, the event celebrates women and their passion to give back, and features seven female volunteer groups working on two home construction sites.
Volunteers for the May 8 event at 227 Calebs Path in Central Islip are residents of Nassau County, Brooklyn and New Jersey. Lunch at the event, which runs from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m., is being donated by Zara’s Deli Restaurant of Selden.
Every year, Habitat Suffolk hosts a Women Build Week to empower women and provide them with an opportunity to take proactive steps in serving their community. The volunteers learn new construction skills with no experience needed and consist mostly of sponsored groups.
Middle Island-based Habitat Suffolk works in partnership with thousands of volunteers and responsible, lower-income families to build and renovate homes for those in need, building between five and eight homes each year.
