The Professional Women in Building Council will partner with Topeka Habitat for Humanity
During the week members of the local building community will assist with the completion of Topeka Habitat’s 106th home locate at 3335 SE Powell Street.
The Professional Women in Building Council (PWIB) is the voice of women in the building industry—dedicated to promoting industry professionalism and supporting members and the community. “As the Topeka Area Building Association we like to give back to the community. If we all put time and effort into our community, we will all benefit. The Professional Women in Building are just doing our part to help see Topeka succeed.” said Katy Nelson from the Topeka Area Building Association.
Topeka Habitat for Humanity has been a non-profit member of the local building community for 35 years. We share a vision where everyone has safe decent place to call home.
“We so appreciate our great partnership with our local building community, and all of the generous sponsors that partner with us to provide home ownership opportunities, improve neighborhoods, empower women, and brighten our community’s future.” said Nikki MacMillan, Director of Community Engagement. “The home we are working on next week is for the Twemlow-Allen Family, I know that this particular family holds a special place for some of the group members because they have worked together before on other projects as volunteers and to see that come full circle and for the council to be able to work on the home of a family they know makes it even more special.”
