Pitman, NJ – Monday, March 15, 2021: Nearly 70 volunteers participated during Gloucester County Habitat for Humanity’s Women Build 2021. And with March 8-12 being International Women Build Week, the volunteers working on the home at 602 Pershing Street in Glassboro, NJ.
“Women have been disproportionately impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, from job loss to evictions and foreclosures. According to The National Women’s Law Center, 80% of U.S. jobs lost during the COVID-19 pandemic were held by women. If we have learned anything during the past year it is how important safe and affordable housing is. Our homes have become work spaces, classrooms, gyms and so much more. Every person deserves safe and affordable housing.” said Tony Isabella, Gloucester County Habitat for Humanity’s Executive Director
The Gloucester County Women Build is one of about 235 nationwide as well as in Canada and India.
