GEORGETOWN, Ky. (WTVQ) – Scott County Habitat for Humanity is partnering with Lowe’s to host  a “how-to” construction clinic for women volunteering during the 10th annual National Women Build Week.

Taking place May 6 through 14, National Women Build Week encourages women to devote at least one day to helping families build a decent and affordable place they can call home in their local community. Lowe’s of Georgetown is gathering builders, suppliers and volunteers to build the walls to a Habitat home on Wednesday, March 29 in their parking lot.
