These tough women gain construction skills and help make a difference in Laramie County

(Cheyenne, Wyo.) - Volunteers participated in Habitat for Humanity International's Women Build event this past weekend, May 7. Women Build is an international event for women who want to learn construction skills and make a difference in their community, according to Pat McIlwain of Habitat for Humanity of Laramie County. Lowe's of Cheyenne hosted a clinic for volunteers of the event last week to teach them the skills they would need for Saturday's event. ​ Twenty volunteers were involved in this year's event and part of the construction of two homes being built for local families. McIlwain stated this weekend volunteers worked on the taping and mudding of drywall in one of the two homes located on Hope Court. First Congregational Society of Service provided lunch for the volunteers over the weekend. "We will build every weekend this summer," McIlwain stated to Pitchengine Communities. "If anyone is interested in volunteering, they can call 637-8067 or 220-7447."
