About the Event
Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles sponsors an annual invitation-only build event for female executives, politicians and philanthropists called Power Women, Power Tools™. Powerful, successful women from various sectors take part in the annual all-women build. The volunteers work on a variety of construction tasks including framing, siding, painting and putting up drywall.
Power Women, Power Tools™ helps to increase awareness and cultivate support for HFH GLA to combat the affordable housing crisis in Greater Los Angeles. Over the past several years this event has attracted influential women from the corporate, entertainment, education and faith sectors including California First Lady Maria Shriver; California Secretary of Service and Volunteering Karen Baker; Councilwoman Janice Hahn; Julie Bowen; Lauren Conrad; Cat Cora; Jennifer Grey; Paige Hemmis; Pauley Perrette; Raven-Symoné and more. Volunteers in pink t-shirts and hardhats come together for a special day of building homes and changing lives and in the process develop lasting friendships.
