May 12 was an historic day for Lakes Area Professional Women (LAPW) who participated in Habitat for Humanity of Douglas County's first-ever Women Build Day.

The LAPW women gathered to insulate a Habitat for Humanity home.

"We surrounded the family with warmth and love. It was truly an inspiring experience. Thanks to all who were there to share their strength and all those sending supportive thoughts." said Nancy Klepetka, LAPW philanthropic committee chair.

In addition to volunteering, the group raised funds for an Energy Star washer and dryer that will be installed in the home.
