Habitat for Humanity hosts Women Build project in Springville

r Charity homebuilder Habitat for Humanity will be sponsoring a home built by volunteer women in Springville this summer. Last summer’s Provo project was a big success so Habitat is offering the experience for a second time.

The Habitat for Humanity website said, “Women Build is Habitat for Humanity’s program for women who want to learn construction skills and build homes and communities. This program brings together women from all walks of life to address the housing crisis facing millions of women and children worldwide. This is the second time the local Habitat affiliate has done a full Women Build. The home will be constructed by over 75 percent of female volunteers from our community.”

Habitat will be funding the project through a Circle of 100 fundraising campaign. “We are asking women in the community to donate $100.00 apiece or gather ten of their friends to put together a team for $1,000. Our goal is to raise $100,000 for the three bedroom, two bathroom Springville home.”

Belinda Bringhurst has already put together her team of 10 friends. For the team donation of $1,000, her team was able to sign up for one four hour building shift.

Bringhurst said she is a creator and loves to build things. She volunteers for local schools building theater sets and teaching art. This project gives her a chance to help others, and learn more about construction.

“It’s a way of doing service, a way of hanging out with my friends and a way of learning all at the same time,” she said.

Bringhurst also hopes to put her new knowledge to use later on by helping her sister build a house for herself.

Habitat hopes to have 40 teams like Bringhurst’s sign up by May. The build starts May 5 and will take 6 to 9 months.

Bringhurst said there are lots of ways for your team to raise the money to participate. Some ideas include holding a bake sale, a walk-a-thon, or selling something at a Farmer’s Market or boutique. Bringhurst’s team is selling coloring books online.
