In August a special week has been set aside as a day designated by Morris Habitat as a “Women Build” week. “Women Build” brings women together from all walks of life to learn construction skills and to advocate for affordable housing and safer, stronger communities.

Beginning today, Monday, August 7th  through Saturday, August 12th  “Women Build” week will be going to 18/20 Wallman Way in  Budd Lake. 

In the past, the response to this special day was overwhelming. Whether you have volunteered before or are a first time participant, Morris Habitat wants you to come out, or even better to get a group together for a special experience. Whether it’s on your own or with a group of friends, a church group, employees from a local company, all women are welcome.

When asked how she felt about last years’ event, Stephanie Sayki, Director of Volunteer Services, said "it was fantastic! The women that participated showed that you don't have to have brawn and muscle to build. They all came together...different ages...different walks of life...all united in one goal, to build a home for a family in need."  

For more information on “Women Build”, go to the Morris Habitat web site at www.MorrisHabitat.org and look under Projects and Women Build.  To sign up just go to the volunteer section or contact stephanie.sayki@morrishabitat.org

I can enjoy the same movies over and over like it were the first time to see them.  My kids roll their eyes at this.  Well, many unimaginable things happen as you become a certain age, and you tend to learn to accept those things graciously as gift.   But I remember the movie “The Blind Side.”  Until I saw that movie, I didn’t know homeless children ...
