A magazine subscription company based in Niwot, Colorado, Atlantic Publishers Group (APG) offers readers a range of titles, including National Geographic, Business Week, and Time. APG also carries popular lifestyle magazines such as Good Housekeeping, Men’s Health, and Marie Claire. Alongside its activities distributing magazines, the Colorado-based Atlantic Publishers Group works to give back through its support of several non-profit organizations, including Habitat for Humanity.

For the last 10 years, Habitat for Humanity has worked to empower women and improve communities through its National Women Build Week. Launched in 2008 as part of its Women Build program, National Women Build Week is implemented through a partnership with Lowe’s, which has committed over $15 million to support the program.

In 2017, Habitat and Lowe’s celebrated the 10th anniversary of Women Build Week by bringing together more than 17,000 women volunteers during the week of May 6-14. Through their efforts and those of Lowe’s Heroes volunteers, 600 families in nearly all 50 states now have new or improved Habitat homes. Since Habitat and Lowe’s launched National Women Build Week, more than 3,800 Habitat families have benefitted from the event.
