The “Sisterhood of the Pink Hard Hat” reunites on March 3 & 4 to build alongside a local family with three young girls.
The annual Women Build fundraising event presented by Moraca Builders, Inc. returns to Boynton Beach on March 3 & 4. Parents of three young girls, Jerrod and Iesha James will work side-by-side with women volunteers as they build a new home for their family. Women Builders of all ages (18 and up) will raise paintbrushes, hammers, roofs and money to help hardworking, low-income families like the James’ build strength, stability and self-reliance through access to affordable homeownership. Habitat for Humanity of South Palm Beach County (HFHSPBC) is now seeking participants, donors, and sponsors for the upcoming event on March 3 & 4, 2022.

“The 2022 Women Build is extra special this year. Women from our local area will come together and make a life-changing impact on the James family for generations to come. Their three daughters will be uplifted and inspired by our community coming together for good.” said Tom Moraca, founder and president of Moraca Builders, who has served on the HFHSPBC Board of Directors since 2018. “Moraca Builders is proud to support Women Build once again this year”
Our Women Build Partner Family this year is Jerrod and Iesha, a married couple with three young daughters, ages 10, 6 and a newborn, currently living in temporary housing. Jerrod has worked for Comcast for the last five years, and Iesha works as a customer service representative. They are working hard towards completing the 600 sweat-equity hours and other Habitat Homeownership Program requirements so that they can purchase their first home, a safe, decent, and affordable Habitat home. With the help of our Women Builders, the James’ will become first-time homebuyers, and over the next 30 years, they will be paying off an affordable interest-free mortgage. This hardworking, dedicated family will build a home and a bright future for their three daughters.
The 2022 Women Build Chair, Danielle Rosse, owner of Ocean 234, mother and community leader, invites local women to join the “Sisterhood of the Pink Hard Hat” on March 3 & 4:
“When women unite to build homes with Habitat for Humanity alongside hardworking, low-income families, they help moms and dads build strength, stability, and independence. Stronger families make stronger communities, and I hope you will join me in uplifting our community through this transformational and empowering experience.”
– Danielle Rosse, 2022 Women Build Chair
The Women Build impact will be even bigger this year. The 2022 Women Build will include a second project. Our Women volunteers will be participating in the revitalization of the American Legion Post 164 across the street from the James’ future home.
“The Boynton Beach American Legion Post 164 is deeply honored to be included in Habitat for Humanity’s most humanitarian effort in building a home for a deserving Boynton Beach family. Opportunities like this don’t come around often and we are so glad that we were considered to partner in this endeavor”.
– Post Commander Paul Reinsburrow
You can build solo, form a team, or join a team, where each participant selects a half-day build shift during the two-day event and commits to fundraising or donating a minimum requirement of $1,000. Funds raised by “The Sisterhood of the Pink Hard Hat” help pay for the cost of construction of Habitat homes. The participants of Women Build create significant change by volunteering, raising funds, and bringing attention to the fact that homeownership is a pathway to better financial futures, better education, better health and a more cared-for, connected community. No construction experience is necessary.
