LEE COUNTY, Fla. - Southwest Florida's women aren't afraid to pick up the tools, and fix up a house for Habitat for Humanity.
This is the third year for the Women's Build program. A group of ladies volunteer to build, or rehab, homes for a Habitat family. One of the homes they're fixing is located in Cape Coral. Bank of America donated it as a foreclosure.
Women who volunteer also get to learn special skills.
"People that have skills will show the people who don't have any skills, I mean, some people have never painted, so you show them how to paint. You show them how to caulk, and how to put baseboard on," said volunteer Becky Brotton.
"Women's Build isn't just for the ladies. Guys are allowed to help out, as well! Two homes with the Women's Build program, including the one in Cape Coral, will be dedicated Saturday.
