A local business is lending a helping hand to travelers stranded in this winter storm. The Cheyenne Home Depot is sticking by their company values, Doing the Right Thing and Giving Back, as they set up a shelter for those stuck in Cheyenne due to closed roads.
"I pulled up here this morning and saw all the trucks and was like we need to do something about this," said Gehrig Perez, Front End Supervisor. "So I came in here and kind of got it all cleaned up in our training room here and said this is what we're going to do let's get some donuts, let's get some coffee going. It kind of grew from there where we got sandwiches and chips and we sent about 3 or 4 staff members out to all the trucks and had them knocking on them saying hey if you guys need to come in or want to get in we got some movies set up, we've got the Internet. Basically we're just trying to do the right thing."
The Red Cross and the Laramie County Emergency Management Agency with assistance from LCSD#1 set up a shelter at Storey Gym for stranded travelers. If you'd like to help, they are in need of monetary donations and
