A dozen professional women representing the Home Builders Association of Greater Chattanooga spent a Saturday working outside the office, helping build two Chattanooga Habitat for Humanity homes. Area women with leading roles in civic, corporate, and nonprofit organizations installed siding during National Women Build Week 2017.
“The HBA of Greater Chattanooga and its members are long-time supporters of Habitat for Humanity and its mission of providing quality housing for those in need,” said Cynthia Blackwell, event coordinator of HBAGC. “In addition to sponsoring Habitat events, several HBAGC members have served in various volunteer capacities on the Habitat board of directors.”
Habitat for Humanity’s National Women Build Week is an annual week-long event that gives women an opportunity to devote at least one day to help families build strength, stability, and independence through housing. Women who volunteered on behalf of HBAGC in this year’s Women Build Week project were: Cynthia Blackwell, Nicole Gosciniak, Karen Delgado of the HBAGC; Becky Ruggiero and Shain Davis of Wells Fargo Home Mortgage; Amber James, Brandi Thompson, and Shana Knight of First Choice Title; Vicki Schambron of Alder and Cox Insurance; Patty Becknell of Prime Lending; and Brenda Boudry of Mr. Handyman of Chattanooga.
