Sioux Falls celebrates Women Build Day with Habitat for Humanity

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KSFY) - The busy construction season is in full swing across the region, so Saturday, dozens of women gathered at Habitat For Humanity for some hard work.

It was National Women Build Day at Habitat for Humanity organizations around the nation, and in Sioux Falls more than 60 female volunteers from several area businesses came out to help build a home for a Harrisburg family.

"It is so fun to bring together women," Niki Schollerstrom with Habitat for Humanity of Greater Sioux Falls said. "So the point is to resource women to feel comfortable on a construction site, learn some construction skills, learn about affordable housing, meet the partner family in a one-on-one situation, and lives are changed on days like today."

The family was present during the build, giving the volunteers the full picture of how their hard work will pay off.
