It's "National Women Build Week" and Habitat for Humanity is challenging women across the country to devote at least one day to help create affordable housing in their community. Volunteers from Lowe's and the Junior League of Reno are picking up paint brushes and hammers and accepting that challenge in Stead. They're pitching in to finish a house on Mount Charleston Street.

Volunteers say it's a great way to learn a few tricks and give back to the community. “You know it's indescribable, it's very rewarding,” says volunteer and human resources manager Lee Forbes of Lowe’s. “It's one of those things that you don't really know until you get out here and do it, and when you're here it turns out to be so much more interesting and more fun than you think it would be.”

National Women Build Week ends on mother’s day, but it’s not too late to get involved. You can find out more information by clicking on the link below.
