SPRINGFIELD, Mo-- One local habitat for humanity is "Hammering for the Holidays" and they need your help. The Springfield chapter is hoping to move four families into four new homes by christmas.
For the past 23 years, Habitat Springfield has built more than 150 homes--providing shelter for more than 600 men, women and children in the Greene County area. As always they need volunteers to continue their mission.
Lately when you hear about volunteer house building projects, the focus turns to Joplin.
"We had volunteers from our organization out at Joplin," said Springfield Habitat of Humanity Director Linda Stewart.
But the need for affordable housing is still prevalent in the Queen City. "It will eventually be six homes. We've started four of them just since last summer," Stewart.
Out at Habitat for Humanity's Builder's Circle Project, volunteers are hard at work. "They're laughing all day long and having fun," said Construction Director Mark Murphy. "That's what we like to do is have fun."
