Women Build Week 2017

We had such a great time participating in this year’s Women Build. This year our “Women Build” days were on May 11 and May 13.  We had both National and local support from Lowe’s Home Improvement.  They supplied the flooring we installed, sent out volunteers and do so much more every year.

Portsmouth Rotary, Seacoast Rotary and Rochester Rotary all contributed money and volunteers to the effort.

Over 50 amazing women came out to help us build.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

NH’s first lady and her daughters joined us, Mrs. Sununu spoke very movingly about her childhood experiences with housing insecurity.

 

One of our local state representatives, Kate Murray, joined us, spoke about the importance of affordable housing and worked hard all day long.  

 

 

The Works Bakery Café, Domino’s of Rochester, and New England Pizza of Rochester donated breakfast and lunch. 

 

 

Families from Portland, Maine; New Castle, NH and Milton, NH sent us cookies, brownies and fudge.

 

 

Talk about it taking a village!

I am humbled and grateful by how much enthusiasm was sent our way.
