Women help build a home for a local family

PETAL, Miss. - Habitat for Humanity had its Women's Build Saturday as a part of National Women Build Week.

Over a dozen volunteers helped build a new home in Petal for a local family.

Jamie Russell, Habitat for Humanity family selection said, "It's great to see women come out and help other women be able to build a home and not just decorate it. It gives them a sense of purpose and a sense of independence. We built tees, corners, and headers that go over the windows and for over the doors. We built the exterior walls and stood the walls."

If you would like to volunteer with Habitat for Humanity, you can call (601) 582-4663 for more information.
