Women Build 2016

BBB’s Team "Gimme SHElter" returns to Queens to support Habitat for Humanity
May 09, 2016

Back in November, Beyer Blinder Belle’s Gimme SHElter team participated in Habitat for Humanity’s Women Build 2015. This event helped to raise awareness for affordable housing for families headed by single mothers in NYC. With the support of our generous donors, including BBB, the team raised over $14,000 to the overall fundraising effort, which exceeded $310,000.

On April 30th, Gimme SHElter returned to Queens to continue the rehabilitation of one of the three homes in the Women Build 2015 program. The work included site clearing, leveling and filling, painting, fireproofing in the basement and caulking at wood stairs. This summer, the team will return to Queens in what will mark our third and last build day of the year. Many thanks to our team members and our donors who participated!
