Locals Volunteer for National Women Build Week

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- More than 30 people on Friday, rolled up their sleeves and volunteered their time to help build a woman a new home.

It was all part of Habitat For Humanity's National Women Build Week. The event invited women to devote at least one day to help families build strength, stability and independence through housing.
   
The task on Friday was to install and paint siding. Volunteers tell us they love taking part, because it's a good thing to do.

Tina Butler, a volunteer says, "It's just something you can do to give back a little bit. I've been fortunate in my life to be blessed with a lot of things. It's something we can do that will help somebody else get to where they want to be."

Habitat for Humanity of Springfield is a non-profit organization that believes every person in the area deserves a decent place to live.
     
Since 1988 the organization has either built or revovated nearly 500 homes locally, providing shelter to nearly one-thousand men, women and children.
