Women Build Homes Two

by Paul Saulnier
May 21, 2018

Women Build brought 12 volunteers to work on Habitat for Humanity's two homes on Chamberlain Street in Holliston on May 18, 2018.

Women Build calls attention to the plight of local single women who need affordable housing.  During the first few weeks of May, teams of participants will be building at 72 Chamberlain Street in Holliston to help bring this issue to light.  The single family home in Holliston will be completed in Summer of 2018, and Maggie, a single woman with three young boys, will be living in the safe and affordable home. 

Women Build is an empowerment event for the participants who are building, and for the local single women who need affordable housing.  You can read more here:  http://www.habitatmwgw.org/events/women-build-2018/

The volunteers this day were from the Natick Moms & Dads, Twelve people who donated $6,000.00 for the right to help build a home for Maggie Benjamin and her three sons and learn how to use power and hand tools.

Out in the back, volunteers were painting closet shelves for the 3 bedroom residence.

Inside the volunteers were laying the hardwood floors. That's Maggie fitting a piece in the doorway below and all smiles below.

Above, Dan, a retired Mechanical Engineer, is a regular volunteer with Habitat for Humanity. "I always wanted to build a house and this was my chance", Dan said. "The house next door that we built for Mona was my first one".

Later the crew was going to hang the kitchen cabinets, above.

Meanwhile, two more volunteers from Natick Moms and Dads, Bridgid and Shane Mulrooney, were spreading gravel at Mona's house.

Below, lunch, donated as always by Bertucci's, was ready for the crew.
