Women Build Week is going virtual this year — and the whole family can join in. From March 1 to March 15, Habitat for Humanity of Greater Sioux Falls is hosting a virtual Women Build Bingo with tasks to explore Sioux Falls and learn about the power of home. Participants will be entered to win grand prize packages for three different age groups: Under 7, 8-14, and 15 and up. Bingo cards can also be picked up in the ReStore March 2-19.

Completed cards can be emailed to volunteer@siouxfallshabitat.org or dropped off in the dropbox at the front entrance of the ReStore (between the double doors). Completed cards will be accepted through Saturday, March 20.

All contact information will only be used for notifications about this event.

About Women Build Week

International Women Build Week, sponsored by Lowe’s, provides the tools for women to empower and educate themselves on skills used when repairing and restoring homes. Taking place over International Women’s Day on March 8, the event unites women to share why safe and affordable housing is important to them.

In a typical year, this is marked by an event that brings volunteers together to build, learn and empower each other as they work alongside future Habitat homeowners. Last year’s event saw more than 100 women volunteer together over two days in Sioux Falls. Due to precautions for Covid, Habitat is not hosting in-person volunteer events for this year’s celebration, though we hope to have boots on the build site for Women Build Week 2022.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who can participate?

Anyone is welcome to participate. Limit one card per person, but multiple people in each household can participate. You do not have to be a resident of Sioux Falls and all ages are welcome. Grand prize winners must be able to pick up the prize at the ReStore or send a representative. If for any reason you are not able to pick up the prize within a reasonable timeframe, the prize will be forfeited and we will draw a new winner.

If the event is virtual this year, can we still volunteer?

Though we will not have a volunteer event for Women Build Week 2021, Habitat welcomes volunteer groups throughout the year. In fact, we are currently scheduling groups through the entire calendar year. Contact Habitat’s Volunteer Coordinator at 605-274-6292 or volunteer@siouxfallshabitat.org to learn more.
