Over 60 community members joined forces with employees from Lowe’s Home Improvement stores to help build projects for Habitat neighborhoods in Winston-Salem to kick off Lowe’s National Women Build Week.

The kick-off ceremony began at 7:30 at Habitat’s site on the 1000 block of West 14th Street.

Following the ceremony, volunteers gathered at the intersection of 13th and University Parkway to install a gateway sign and placed two community information boards in the Glenn Oaks and Kimberly Park neighborhoods. They also built raised beds in gardens located at Cherry and 17th streets.

The volunteers finished their work at 3 p.m.

Lowe’s National Women Build Week runs from May 5-13.
