(Glen Mitchell / Pitchengine Communities)* (Riverton, Wyo.) - This past week brought another volunteer workday to the Habitat for Humanity housing project currently located at the Riverton High School. Members of the Rotary Club of Lander were on hand to work on soffit and siding phases of the new home. Approximately twelve people gathered to augment the daily efforts of the Riverton High School – Geometry in Construction program work on the house. This house is seventeenth build in the history of the local Habitat organization and the second of four which will result from the partnership between Habitat and the Geometry in Construction program. The house is tentatively scheduled to be moved to its lot location on the old hospital grounds in late May or early June.

Volunteers, such as family and friends of the homeowners, are allowed to volunteer to assist the homeowner in achieving up to half of their Sweat Equity Hours. Habitat wants to thank everyone who donates their time to volunteer to work on the house as well as those who support the Habitat mission financially. A special thanks goes out to local businesses who support Habitat in a variety of ways to make the construction of new homes possible. *h/t Glen Mitchell* #county10 #news
