Women Build 2022

0 Comment

First Merchants bank raised over $20,000 towards CC’s home!

This September and October, more than 140 women – and a few men –  from across Delaware County came together to fundraise and build safe and affordable housing during Muncie Habitat for Humanity’s 2022 Women Build. The event, which has been held for over ten years, raised almost $50,000. 

The event empowers women to help families build strength, stability, and independence.

Each Women Build team is encouraged to raise $2,500, or $250 per builder. The funds help buy materials for the same home they help build.

At the Volunteer Banquet we celebrated our top Women Build fundraisers with donated prizes, thanks to our sponsors!

Our 2nd through 4th place top individual fundraisers will receive a $50 University Dermatology Gift Card and a metal art print from Kishel Photography
