Valdosta - A cold, rainy day isn't stopping Selener Harvey from building her dream home. In just two weeks, Selener and five other Lowndes County families will get an extra special Christmas treat-- a brand new home for the holidays.
"Joy is the perfect word to describe what this Christmas will be like," said Harvey.
"It means more than anything, to me and my kids," said Patricia Eailey.
The Home for the Holidays build is serving as a test for this summer's Jimmy Carter Work Project, where Habitat will build 5 homes in just one week. And so far, the test is showing positive results.
"The volunteerism has been great," said Hugh Bailey, Jimmy Carter Work Project Chairman. "People are really showing their generosity with this project."
This is the most homes the Valdosta-Lowndes Habitat chapter has attempted to build in such a short time period. But they guarantee the new home owners will move in by December 24th, making this Christmas their merriest ever.
