The Greater Brewton Habitat for Humanity has announces the groups first Pink Power Project. The project will be a hands-on building clinic designed especially for women held in the parking lot of The Hourglass in downtown Brewton.
The event is set for Saturday, Oct. 13, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. and will feature instructors and members of the Habitat building committee offering guidance and moral support for volunteers.
According to Habitat officials, the project will benefit those who are interested in volunteering during building efforts, by teaching skills to build storage buildings for future Habitat projects.
During the daylong event, women will learn building skills such as framing, sawing, vinyl siding installation, roofing, painting and other skills involved in building homes.
Participants will receive a commemorative T-shirt, a nail apron, lunch and an opportunity to win door prizes. Other surprises will also be on hand for the event.
The Pink Power Project is limited to the first 50 women who pay the builder's fee of $100, which is a donation to the Greater Brewton Habitat for Humanity.
Participants may pay the fee themselves or have a church, club, business or other organization make the tax-deductible donation on their behalf.
Those who are not able to physically participate may make their donations to the group to offer a scholarship for those who want to volunteer but are unable to pay the builders fee.
For more information on signing up for the Pink Power Project, to volunteer for upcoming projects or to make a donation to the Greater Brewton Habitat for Humanity, contact Alecia Glaize at 867-0095.
