Weather postpones women's Habitat build

May 5, 2011 

The Lexington Habitat for Humanity's 2011 Women's Build that was scheduled to begin May 6 has been postponed due in major part to the recent inclement weather, said Rob Turner, volunteer coordinator.

Now the build at 713 Shropshire Avenue will be May 13 through May 21, he said. Then, subcontractors will do plumbing, HVAC, drywall and electrical work before the build continues on June 3-11.

This year's build will benefit Melanie Foster, who works in the housing department at the University of Kentucky, and her two children, Lauren, 20, and William, 9.

Volunteers can reschedule work days through Turner at Lexington Habitat,, or 252-2224, Ext 108.
