The McLean County chapter of Women Build began in 2003 and starts work on their 16th home in May of 2019. Women Build is exactly what it sounds like - a group of women coming together to build a home alongside a deserving family. No prior experience is needed; we have a talented project director who can teach volunteers anything they need to know.
The goal of Women Build is to empower women to help families build strength, stability and self-reliance through shelter, and to guide our local volunteers to improve their communities.
This year, Women Build is building with the Alvarez/Sotelo family.
The Women Build team not only physically builds a home each year, they also contribute financially as individuals and through fundraising initatives. We encourage you to put a "Save the Date" on your calendar for the 2019 Bunco Blitz, their main annual fundraiser. Held at the Radisson Hotel & Conference Center in Normal, it's a riotous night of Bunco with prizes, silent auction, tasty appetizers, and cash bar. You'll be able to sign up as an individual, a table of 4, or a pod of 12.
Online registration opens July 1st.
