Members of Grand Island media outlets joined forces with Habitat for Humanity volunteers to raise a new home today.
The print, radio, and television professionals exchanged wordsmithing for swinging hammers and wielding saws on Grand Island's 67th Habitat home.
Among the newly minted construction workers was Nebraska Central News's own Sara Geake.
Habitat staff members say, yes, even media types can be made "shovel ready."
Habitat volunteer coordinator Megan Cure: "We have several professional builders on site. We have a great building committee that is always willing to take people aside and teach them the basics, or teach them how to run a saw. People of all skill levels can help build a Habitat house."
Habitat for Humanity clients Victoria and Carlos Linares and their three daughters will soon move into the new home.
