Women team up to build Habitat home

Women Build teams raise walls for Habitat for Humanity

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Fourteen teams of women teamed up Saturday to build a Cape Fear Habitat for Humanity home in Wilmington.

Saturday, the women raised the first walls and started building the house.

Volunteers said there’s no reason anybody should be confined to a stereotype. They said anybody can do what they wish if they put their mind to it.

“I think this shows that women, girls, can do anything that is available of their interest," Karen Berger, a volunteer, said.
