Gabrielle Reineck, senior director of outreach for Charlotte County Habitat, Linda Williams, Lisa Hayden, Barbara Ansell, Ricki Cooper Markle, Lyn Foshee, Mike Mansfield, Habitat CEO, and Ron Monck pose as employees of Centennial Bank present a check for $5,000 to the nonprofit.
Last fall, Charlotte County Habitat for Humanity was toying with the idea of participating in Women Build, a program put forth by Habitat for Humanity International.

After several information meetings held during November, enough teams committed to participate and Women Build moved forward.
