Women transforming Montgomery County
In partnership with Women Building Washington Group of ABC Metro Washington Chapter, Rebuilding Together Montgomery County will host a She Builds event on March 8, 2019 (International Women’s Day). This sister to sister event supports low-income female homeowners by creating safer and healthier homes, and give female builders a meaningful, hands-on opportunity for service.
In 2018, we had nearly 100 volunteers working on three different project sites. Volunteers worked on the homes of two female-led households in Damascus and Rockville, in addition to working on a women’s shelter in Silver Spring. This group of dedicated volunteers raised over $21,000 through a peer to peer campaign. This year, we are dedicating to raising over $25,000 through a peer to peer campaign with the support of family, friends, colleagues, and businesses.
The funds raised at She Builds will not only support the projects that will be part of the event, but will also go towards supporting safe and healthy home repairs in many other households throughout Montgomery County.
If you have any questions about She Builds, or would like to support this year’s event, please contact Elisa Hermes, Director of Development, at 301-947-9400 x101 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
