Queens Build Starting

The money is in the bank. And now they're getting ready to start swinging hammers for the Habitat for Humanity project in Queens. Organizers exceeded their goal of raising 60-thousand dollars to help build the house that will become a home for a Liverpool family of four. Spokesperson Bobbi Jo Goulden says this week will be the build kickoff groundbreaking ceremony. The event will run this Friday afternoon from two until four at the build site on Amherst Street in Liverpool. Habitat for Humanity uses donated labour and materials to build homes for people who otherwise couldn't afford them. The money the families pay back, goes into the fund to help build additional homes for other families in need.
