The rain didn't stop our Women Build Ladies!

Women Build is Habitat for Humanity's program that empowers women to learn construction skills, build homes, and build communities. The ladies who participated in this year's build days raised funds and were rewarded with fun incentive gifts when they reached different goals. The first one is the t-shirt they are wearing, and then the pink gloves and safety glasses. They looked pretty sharp with all their gear on!

The first day of our Women Build weekend, the ladies laid all the sod for our Spruce St. yard. They lifted and hauled many rolls of sod to get the job done before the rain came in. They were dirty and tired, but also very proud of the work they had accomplished. Thank you for all of your hard work and determination to get the job done!

The rain stopped long enough on Saturday morning for the ladies to build garage wall frames and some interior wall frames. They were done building them before lunch time! The walls are for the home of Marisa and Tino, and their family. Their home will be built with features to aid their son who is in a wheelchair. While the ladies were building, Marisa Facetimed her son to show him the wall frames that had been built. Needless to say, both of them were very excited to see the beginning stages of what will be their home. Marisa is pictured in the third photo talking to her son on the phone. Thank you to all the ladies who took nails and boards and turned them into frames for walls that will soon be a home.
