Wiregrass Volunteers Come Together for National Women Build Week

By  | 

It's habitat for humanity's national women build week.

More than 13-thousand volunteers are expected to help build homes in their community. Ladies from all different walks of life, coming together to build. Hammer and play with power tools.

"We have women that come and volunteer, who are nurse practitioners, in management, working in banks, retail and waitresses," said Charlotte Golden, a local volunteer.

A diverse group that most don't often see at construction sites. Golden has been a part of the National Women Build Program for the past twelve years. She says it's a rewarding experience.

"If I had a lot of money I would give it. But you don't get the satisfaction of giving money than coming out to give, work and help build a home for a family."

Enterprise resident Schoen Bonura knows this process all too well. She's originally from the gulf coast. Although her home wasn't damaged in Hurricane Katrina, she helped others who weren't as lucky.

"I felt like God spared me for a reason and it was my job to help out and give other people the assistance they needed to get back on their feet and it's just a great project, I mean we come together with women of liked minds," said Bonura.

Habitat for humanity organizers say this new home on Ashford Road will be complete at some point in July. If you would like to volunteer please contact the Wiregrass Habitat For Humanity office at the number below.
