1. Donate

2. Volunteer

It is about including women and opening new doors of opportunity.  It is held from September 25th through the 28th.  If you are interested in participating, email or call Whitney Guthrie at wguthrie@richmondhabitat.org or (804) 232-7001 ext. 112 to receive a registration packet today!
