"We strongly support Habitat for Humanity and its Women Build Week by participating every year. ”- Gayle Gerling Pettinga

Diane Shirley, intake coordinator; Valerie Hunt, paralegal; and administrator, Lori Crow, from Gerling Law, recently helped Habitat for Humanity build a house during National Women Build Week. “We strongly support Habitat for Humanity and its Women Build Week by participating every year,” said attorney Gayle Gerling Pettinga, founder of Gerling Law.

The program invites women to devote at least one day to help families build strength, stability, and independence through housing. The week is meant to spotlight the homeownership challenges faced by women. More than 98,000 women from all 50 states have volunteered at the nine previous National Women Build Week events.

On Thursday, August 23, Gerling Law staff will also be attending the Evansville Habitat for Humanity HabiTea at the Evansville Country Club. This is the third year the firm has sponsored a table at the event. HabiTea is the annual fundraiser for Habitat’s Women Build. HabiTea originated in Evansville as a fundraiser for the Women’s Build. Along with tea tastings, attendees will enjoy a delightful lunch, a testimonial from a Habitat future homeowner, a silent auction, and vendors.

For more information, to donate to the silent auction and/or to purchase tickets or table sponsorships, please contact Gail Knight Williams at (812) 423-5623 ext. 31.
