Habitat For Humanity To "Raise The Wall" At Annual Women Build Home

Thursday, April 4, 2019

Habitat for Humanity of Greater Chattanooga Area is inviting the public to join them for the wall raising media on the  annual Women Build House, April 6 from 10-10:30 a.m. The event will take place at the build site located at 3415 Kirkland Avenue in Chattanooga.

 

“This is one of the best activities of any of our builds,” said Dominique Brandt, Development Director, Habitat for Humanity of Greater Chattanooga Area. “Raising the walls on a house is a great visual that reminds all of us of the family we are raising up by providing a permanent home.”

 

This year’s celebrity builder and News Channel 9 anchor Kim Chapman will be on site for the event. Chapman has been sharing news throughout the region for almost two decades and is featured on the ABC-affiliate’s 6 and 11 p.m. newscasts.  In addition, she is well-known for her significant volunteer contributions that make a difference throughout the Tennessee Valley.

 

“Giving back to the community is extremely important to me,” said Chapman. “Habitat for Humanity is one of my favorite organizations and I’m honored to take part in the Women Build House.”

 

Working alongside community volunteers will be the recipient of this year’s Women Build House, Vanester Steele and her family.

 

The Women Build home is made possible by funds raised by the Women Build Fundraising Breakfast and the Women Build Fundraising  & Construction Teams.
