We are a team fundraising for Habitat for Humanity GTA's Women Build! Our team, Heels of Steel, is volunteering with Habitat for Humanity GTA during their upcoming Women Build event on September 23, 2017. It's a great community cause that helps families build strength, stability and self-reliance, through affordable homeownership.
This year's build will take place at the 140 Pinery Trail build site in Scarborough. All funds raised will go directly to building homes in the GTA. Since 2009, Habitat for Humanity GTA Women Build events have rallied together over 5,000 women to raise more than $4 million and help build 85 homes in the GTA.
Heels of Steel has been out on the build site for many years, and we are pleased to welcome both new and returning members to the team this year!
