Habitat Builds 48th Home

Posted: December 9, 2012 at 4:43 a.m.

Mady Gray, 12, reaches up as far as she can Saturday while painting the trim on the storage shed next to a new house built by Habitat for Humanity of Washington County at 100 Terry Ave. in Springdale. About a dozen student volunteers helped with the house after researching the organization for a school project. Mady said she chose Habitat for Humanity because it “benefits people around the world.” The house’s dedication ceremony is scheduled for 2 p.m. today.

Six months ago, Casey Burd and her two kids were lying in a vacant lot of fresh sod, staring at the stars.
