While mothers across the country are hoping to receive flowers, cards or gifts on Sunday for Mother’s Day, a very special group of women will receive keys to a new Habitat home in Cape Coral. These moms are the recipients of a home built or rehabbed through Habitat for Humanity of Lee and Hendry Counties, Inc. (“Habitat”) Women Build project. Women Build encourages women to make a difference by building or rehabbing homes and helping Habitat with its home-building mission.
Habitat Women Build is a perfect fit for Giving Alliance of Women (“GAW”), a non profit organization serving Cape Coral, Florida since 1973. GAW is a component of the Cape Coral Community Foundation, consisting of a group of women involved with philanthropy in the Cape Coral community. These women, pictured above, formed a team and raised $5,000 to participate in Habitat’s 2012 Women Build.
