Women will unite Oct. 13 for a special Habitat for Humanity building clinic - the first Brewton area Pink Power Project.
The event - part fundraiser, part clinic, part Habitat building project - will teach women building skills, said Alecia Glaize, executive director of the Greater Brewton Habitat for Humanity chapter.
But the project will end with something valuable for Habitat: Women participating in the event will build a storage building for one of the houses.
And the clinic will also raise money - $100 per participant, with the project limited to 50 participants - to help pay for another house next year.
Glaize said those funds are important because Habitat needs the money to continue its house projects.
Business sponsors have paid for the T-shirts, lunch and other tools for the clinic, so the money contributed by the participants will go straight to Habitat's building fund.
Glaize said male instructors from Habitat's building committee will lead the clinic.
Glaize said she hopes women who attend the clinic will use their new skills both at home and at future Habitat projects.
