Women join Habitat for Humanity build in Sylvan Lake

Triplex under construction

Female volunteers will be at Habitat for Humanity Red Deer’s Sylvan Lake construction site on Friday.

Between eight and 10 local female volunteers will be priming and painting at the Vista triplex, at 4040 Ryders Ridge Blvd., from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

It’s the first women’s build of the season and another is planned for late August.

The Vista triplex marks the 36th, 37th and 38th homes built during Habitat for Humanity Red Deer’s 25-year history in central Alberta.

The group is always looking for volunteers to lend a hand with future building events. For more information, contact Tori Gilbertson at tori.gilbertson@habitatreddeer.ca.
