Lowe’s Clinic: Power Tool Safety

Sticker_TucsonWomenBuildHabitat for Humanity Tucson and longtime national partner Lowe’s are hosting “how-to” construction clinics for volunteers in conjunction with the ninth annual National Women Build Week.

The Lowe’s clinic will teach participants how to safety use hand and power tools.

Where: 7105 E Speedway Blvd, Tucson, AZ 85710

When: May 21 at 8 am

To sign up for the clinic, volunteers should contact Habitat Tucson at (520) 326-1217 ext. 210 or email cynthiaf@habitattucson.org

Similar clinics are taking place across the country and are open to women interested in volunteering at a local Women Build site during National Women Build Week.

Taking place April 30-May 8, National Women Build Week encourages women across the country to devote at least one day to help families build strength, stability and self-reliance through housing in their local communities. The project will support “Home for the Holidays”, a nationwide initiative by Lowe’s and Habitat for Humanity to build or repair 1,000 homes alongside families in time for the holidays.

Lowe’s helped launch National Women Build Week in 2008, and each year provides the support of Lowe’s Heroes employee volunteers and conducts how-to clinics at stores to teach volunteers construction skills. This year, Lowe’s contributed $2 million to National Women Build Week. Since its partnership began in 2003, Lowe’s has committed more than $63 million to Habitat and helped nearly 5,500 families improve their living conditions.
