Women’s team helps local Habitat build No. 50

The 50th house built by the local chapter of Habitat for Humanity received a woman's touch on Friday. In recognition of National Women Build Week (April 30 to May 8) and Mother's Day (Sunday), a team of five women employees from the Lowe's store in Muskegon were among a group of volunteers working on the Habitat construction project at 208 Branmar Woods Court in Spring Lake.

“(Lowe’s) also gave a $5,000 gift card to Habitat to help with the cost of building the house,” Tri-Cities Area Habitat for Humanity Executive Director Beth Hanis said.

Lowe’s stores nationwide participate in the program, called Lowe’s Heroes. The company said it is awarding more than $1.3 million to about 250 Habitat affiliates across the country during this year’s National Women Build Week.

Hanis said the work by the Lowe’s crew on Friday is on the home for a single mom, Corrina Beak — who has two elementary-age sons, Marcus and Michael.
