Lake Agassiz Habitat For Humanity Hosts “Diva Day”

A group of women volunteers work on insulation as part of Thrivent Build’s Diva Day.

If you happened to drive past 1534 1st Ave South in Fargo yesterday, you probably saw a lot of pink shirts. Yesterday was a special build day on the Thrivent Builds with Bound South build site in Fargo- Lake Agassiz Habitat for Humanity partnered with Thrivent Financial for Lutherans to host a “Diva Day”. This special women build day gave women a chance to learn new skills through hands on work by helping build a new home for a local Habitat family.

“Thrivent Build’s Diva Day is great opportunity for women to come together to help solve the housing crisis of a local family,” said Katie McCormick, Program & Marketing Manager for Lake Agassiz Habitat for Humanity.


Women were treated in true “diva-style” and enjoyed lunch, beverages and souvenirs. “Diva Day” is all about empowering women while addressing the need for affordable housing in our community.

All smiles at Lake Agassiz Habitat for Humanity’s first Diva Day!

“It was great to see so many fun women- and a few men- come together to work on the home,” said Jackie Mattfeld, Volunteer Coordinator for Lake Agassiz Habitat for Humanity. “We had an awesome time and got so much done!”

Lake Agassiz Habitat for Humanity would like to thank the volunteers from Thrivent Financial for Lutherans, Widmer-Roel, Diva Connection and members of the NDSU Women’s Club for their work on the home.  The group spent the day installing insulation and hanging plastic in the home.  Check out all the pictures from the day’s work on Lake Agassiz Habitat for Humanity’s Facebook page.
