Bend-Redmond Habitat to host Women Build Week in May –

BEND, Ore. (KTVZ) – Bend-Redmond Habitat for Humanity is excited to host Women Build Week May 4-8 in the Redmond community.

Women Build is a project where women and only women build and fund a house, together in May. This event brings women together to devote at least one day to building affordable housing in their local communities.

Bend-Redmond Habitat anticipates more than 100 women volunteering during the week, building and accomplishing a lot of necessary work on a home for a family in need of affordable housing in Redmond.

Volunteers do not need any experience. Habitat will train on all aspects of the house building process. Types of construction for the build week could include framing, drywall, painting and more.

Registration is now open for Women Build week, for morning or afternoon shifts, and are available for individuals or teams. The cost is $100/volunteer/shift. Lunch and a T-shirt will be provided. To sign up or for more details,

Speaking of T-shirts, Habitat has a T-shirt contest going on right now through March 15 to find the best artwork for the 2020 Women Build shirt. If interested in submitting a design idea, check out
