Habitat for Humanity women's build

Habitat for Humanity is using girl power.

Wednesday dozens of women workED on a home where a family should move in next month.

This is National Women's Build Week.

Habitat for Humanity female employees from Americus donned pink shirts to renovate this home on Pinedale Court in Albany.

Lowes is sponsoring 300 builds across the country this week with more than 15,000 women.

Habitat For Humanity Women's Build Event Planner Dena Jackson said "What we are doing is not only empowering women, but building houses not only for women but men too.  So it's just an important event around the U.S.ths week."

This home was returned to Habitat,  and these volunteers are redoing the floors,  kitchen, and bathrooms so another family can have a home of their own.
