She Builds 2019

In partnership with Women Building Washington Group of ABC Metro Washington Chapter, Rebuilding Together Montgomery County hosted a She Builds event on March 8, 2019. This sister to sister event supported low-income female homeowners by creating safer and healthier homes, and gave female builders a meaningful, hands-on opportunity for service. The event took place on International Women’s Day and was strategically planned around 2019 Women in Construction Week.

This year, we had approximately 40 volunteers working on one project site and raised over $20,000 through a peer to peer campaign with the support of over 190 family, friends, colleagues, and businesses. Funds raised for She Builds not only supported the project itself but will go towards supporting safe and healthy home repairs in many other households throughout Montgomery County.

To learn more information about She Builds or how you get involved, please contact Elisa Hermes at 301-947-9400 ext. 101 or ehermes@rebuildingtogethermc.org
