And the seventh annual, in fact, and in these few days, the House is already taking shape. This morning, a look at who is helping now.

Homes are built one nail and 2 x 4 at a time. Houston Habitat for Humanity homes are also built one sponsor and one volunteer at a time.

(Raleigh Jenkins–Owner of ABC Home and Commercial services speaking)

ABC Home and Commercial Services is a family owned business. We’re here in Houston and I’m a single generation, our third generation, here at this house today working, slinging hammers and doing great things today.


(Ben Johnson, employee of ABC Home and Commercial Service speaking)

We work together serving customers at ABC every day, but today to work together to serve somebody in the communities. Very special.
