The COVID-19 pandemic is challenging charities to think differently about how to engage the community, especially when it comes to fundraising.
Habitat for Humanity Southern Alberta is demonstrating how this can be done by inviting women to step forward to invest, advocate and take action to build a stronger community through Women Build, presented by TC Energy.
Right now, there are more than 4,000 people on the waiting list for affordable housing in Calgary. Each May, Habitat invites nearly 200 women to come together to build affordable homes and address this need.
Women Build is one of our biggest fundraisers of the year. Social distancing has meant this annual event cannot be held right now -- but the fundraising will continue even without swinging a hammer. Habitat needs your help to support homeowners right now by donating to Women Build.
TC Energy, Gordon Food Services, Fluor Canada, CTV, and dedicated fundraisers have recognize the urgent need for affordable home ownership during these times, and have generously shifted their donations from the traditional event to this digital fundraiser.
Together, we can help families build strength, stability and independence through affordable home ownership.
The funds raised through Women Build will be used to support Habitat homeowners, and help build new homes for families in our communities.
A safe and secure Habitat home means a family can focus on the educational successes of their children, they are better positioned for food security and positive health outcomes, and it enables them to become more engaged and active members of our communities.
Plus, as a participating charity in Shaw Birdies for Kids presented by AltaLink, your donations will be matched up to 50%, making your gifts go even further.
