DENVER — The Denver Broncos are sponsoring Habitat for Humanity's inaugural Women Build Week beginning Wednesday at 9:30 a.m. in Englewood, Colo.
Broncos Cheerleaders, female business leaders, women's empowerment groups and many others will join together for a week-long build with more than 175 women to help construct two homes for two deserving families. Women Build Week marks the first event in a six-part 2015 Champions Build series, sponsored by the Denver Broncos.
"It's inspiring to see so many women join together for our first annual Women Build Week," CEO of Habitat for Humanity of Metro Denver Heather Lafferty said. "These empowered women understand the importance of affordable housing in our community and are willing to roll up their sleeves and help by building good, affordable homes for hardworking, low-income families."
Throughout the five-day Women Build Week, diverse groups of women from across metro Denver will join together to frame all of the walls for a duplex. On the first day of construction, the homes will start with bare sub floors and by the end of the week all walls will be raised and roof trusses installed.
Habitat for Humanity has been a proud community partner of the Denver Broncos since 2012 as part of their "Be a Champion in the Community" campaign. The partnership is expanding in 2015 with a series of six-build events, beginning with Women Build Week. //
