This is the first of two homes Scott County's Habitat for Humanity is building this year.
The house the volunteers worked on Tuesday will soon be a home for a Georgetown family of three.
The volunteers with with Habitat Bergen Women Build Committee joined up Lowe's Heroes in an effort to to help transform the former store into the future location of the Bergen Habitat ReStore. Each volunteer shift runs 7:30 to 11:30 a.m.
"Volunteers get Women Build t-shirts, lunch on site and they are taught whatever task it is for that day and Lowes offers free clinics to help with that".
"This one house, this one family is going to be a part of this community and if that one person can make a positive difference in the rest of this community then that's worth it", USCG Yeoman 1st class Toni Powell said.
Aldermen Van Johnson, John Hall, Estella Shabazz and Carolyn Bell took part in a ceremony Tuesday along with Lowe's representatives, CEHFH board of directors, Habitat homeowners, volunteers and CEHFH Executive Director Harold Tessendorf.
