GM Wentzville Volunteers Assist with Habitat’s Women Build Program
Prior to volunteering at the annual Elder Court barbecue, volunteers from the General Motors Wentzville Assembly Plant joined members of UAW Chapter 2250 and Habitat for Humanity of St. Charles County to help with the seventh Women Build home.
The Women Build is a program specifically for women to learn the skills necessary to build homes. At the St. Charles County Women Build, the team worked together to build a three-bedroom home. The build is the result of a partnership with the Tesson family, the 72nd partner family of Habitat St. Charles.

Also making the build possible is a $1 million grant from the GM Foundation. The grant will help up to 11 home builds around the globe throughout 2015.
“This is about more than just building a house,” said GM Foundation President Vivian Pickard. “This is about giving a families like the Tesson’s the stability of a permanent home and a better sense of belonging to a community.”
Volunteers expect to have construction on the home completed by November of this year.
