Pittsfield, MA


A team of 11 women from Guardian’s Regional Office in Pittsfield, MA participated in the local Habitat for Humanity chapter’s “Women’s Build Day” on May 8.

The Guardian volunteers moved building materials, dug post holes, installed fencing, pulled gravel away from the foundation, spray painted rusty gas pipes, and did yard work all to build a new home for a local mother and her 8-year-old daughter.

“The women were amazing,” says Carolyn Valli, Executive Director of the local Habitat for Humanity chapter. “They got the fence up in less than half the time we had expected, which was no easy task considering they were dealing with buried boulders.”
