Pink BoardsWhat’s up with the Pink 2 x 4 ’s around campus?  Southeast Technical is pleased to announce they have joined forces with Habitat for Humanity to be a part of the first, local-level “Women Build” team.  Southeast Tech’s “Hard Hat Honeys” have joined the Women Build division of Habitat for Humanity International to promotes the involvement of women in Habitat home construction.

Each team is required to raise at least $5,000 to participate in this worthwhile project, the pink boards represent just one of many fundraising activities created to add interest and involvement from the community.  Numerous pink boards are located throughout the city for fundraising purposes, supporters are invited to make a contribution of ($2 or more) to autograph the board. All of the boards will be collected in April and will be incorporated into the framing of the house (how cool right?) Your signature will be a real-live part of the inner workings of the home and will stay there for the life of the home. Construction is scheduled to start in May of 2010. Further updates and other opportunities to contribute will be posted in the near future.

General information: The first women-only "build"  project (Charlotte, North Carolina; 1991) garnered so much support and enthusiasm that word spread quickly and soon many other "women builds" followed. In 1998, Habitat for Humanity International officially created the Women Build Department with the following creed.

Building decent, affordable housing for families in need is the single goal of Habitat for Humanity and Women Build. Women crews around the world helped reach a new record total of Women Build houses built in one year: 252 in 2009! As of the start of 2010, at least 1,652 Women Build houses had been builtsince this became a Habitat for Humanity International program in 1998. Reaching this lofty goal, however, depends on the generous support of individuals, corporations, and the community at large. Working together, pooling our resources, we can strengthen neighborhoods and families - one house at a time.
