Habitat for Humanity seeks volunteers for third annual "Women Build" project


BELLINGHAM - Habitat for Humanity in Whatcom County is recruiting volunteers for its third annual "Women Build" project.

An informational meeting has been set for 9 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 16, in the upstairs Community Room at the Cordata Community Food Co-op, 315 Westerly Road in Bellingham.

Volunteers will build a house on Leeside Drive in Birch Bay with future owners Julio and Juana Ortiz and their four children.

"Women Build" helps women learn construction skills and tackle poverty in their communities. No construction experience is needed.

Men also may participate, although organizers try to keep work crews at least 75 percent women.

Construction should begin in early December and most of the work will occur on Saturdays.

For more information about the meeting, call 360-715-9170.
