Tuesday was Women of the Media Day for Lauderdale County Habitat for Humanity. Several volunteered their time to work on a house being built for a local family.
Habitat executive director Fonda Rush says that during this building blitz, all help is welcome.
"Our goal is to be completed with this house, hopefully, by next Sunday the 17th," said Rush. "And the goal is working, working, working. We know we pretty much can get there. But if people are interested in wanting to volunteer with us they can call."
Anyone needing details about the build at 3119 18th Street may call 601-479-0515.
The latest Habitat build is also a project of Meridian's Catholic community. Our own Nick Adam also pitched in to help.
