ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Women will have the opportunity to get their hammers and chainsaws in hand for National Women Build Week.

It's sponsored by Habitat for Humanity. 

Flint River Habitat for Humanity and Lowe's will host the 11th annual build all next week. 

Women can help build a veteran's home in Lee County. 

Right now organizers are encouraging more women to get involved to help with the new building. 

"Most of the women in our company, we work on computers. We do not build houses, we do not do landscaping. So it gives us the opportunity to give back to the community and also to work as a team to provide a service for our community," said Flint River Habitat for Humanity volunteer Tammy McCrary. 

Organizers said they will build walls for the home and later transport it to the foundation for completion. 

Anyone who is interested in participating can contact Flint River Habitat for Humanity.
