Lubbock Habitat for Humanity needs community help

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Lubbock Habitat For Humanity is about to begin constructing their final home at their lot in north Lubbock, but they say they're in need of a few volunteers first.

The group helps families become home owners by helping them build a house.

They say Texas Tech students will start building the next home on Aug. 19.

The students will spend that whole week helping to raise the walls on the new house, but volunteers from the community will be needed to help finish construction.

Marie Hanza is the executive director for Lubbock Habitat for Humanity and says anyone can come out and help.

"We need all types of skill levels. We will match you up with what your comfortable doing. If you want to learn something then we have our construction coordinator there that can teach you how to do certain things," Hanza said.

If you would like to volunteer, call 763-4663. You can learn more at www.lubbockhabitat.org.
