Eileen and Ron White along with their grandchildren Mason and Bailey Whynot have been selected the family for the build by Habitat for Humanity in Queens County. The grandchildren have been with the Whites since their oldest daughter lost custody of the two children. Part of the requirements for the Whites to take the grandchildren was for them to have a three bedroom house. They are currently renting a home in Port Medway but have been struggling to make ends meet. They look forward to being able to move to Liverpool which is closer to the schools and offers sports opportunities for the children. As part of Habitat for Humanity's mandate, the chosen family has to put in 500 hours of "sweat equity" which could involve helping with the build to assisting in fundraising. To date over 50 thousand dollars for the build has been raised of the total goal of 60 thousand by the end of this month. It's hoped the build can start in early September.
