A Message From Melissa Swymer
Hello Friends and Family!
Last year, I had the opportunity to participate in a Habitat for Humanity Build. It's something I've always wanted to do and I am so happy I finally got the ball rolling. As soon as I heard about the 2019 Women Build, I jumped on the opportunity. I look forward to the next few months of fundraising, building and handing the keys over to a very deserving family.
Please help me in this journey by donating to the cause...every dollar helps.

About This Campaign
Women from all over Hillsborough County are joining together, once again, to make the dream of home-ownership a reality for a single mother in Hillsborough County.
Last year we built a home for Tangie Burton and her 4 sons. The year before, we built a home for Candice Cowen and her 4 children, 2 boys and 2 girls. Both years, women not only built the homes for the families mentioned; they also raised the funds that paid for the land and materials needed.
In 2017 we raised $86,000.
In 2018 we raised $121,000.
Lets make this year our best one yet!
What is Women Build About?
Women Build is a call to action for women looking to better their community and spread awareness of the challenges for families who can’t afford decent housing. It empowers women volunteers to participate in an exciting experience constructing a home for a local single mother.
Between April 6th and June 15th, 2019, teams of women will work together on a designated build site to physically construct a Habitat home for a limited-income family in Hillsborough County.
**Each team or individual is welcome to schedule one full day to work on the build site.**
*Teams and individuals will raise enough money to fund a new home construction project.
**Individual fundraising requirement to build: $600
**Team fundraising requirement to build depends on the number of women on team. BUT the average team for the Women Build is 10 so, 10 team members = $6,000 team goal.
