Habitat for Humanity House

By  | 

Two local charity groups are joining forces to make a difference in the lives of families in need.

The Bay Point Women's Club sponsored a Habitat for Humanity house.

Saturday's Blitz Build attracted more than 50 people. They were hammering away to put up the walls of the Callaway home on Boat Race Road.

The women from Bay Point joined dozens of other community volunteers to complete this phase of the project.

Club president Eve Herman says working hard has been fun.

"It's just been something that's so fantastic for the club. The women can actually come out and participate, do hammers and saws. When women say, ‘oh, I don't know how to build anything,’ they can actually come out here and do this."

Habitat builds homes for those in need in our community. Since 1992 they've built 40 homes in Bay County. Around the world, the group has built 750,000 homes in 3,000 communities.
