Volunteers help make a difference for family in Kennebunk
KENNEBUNK (WGME) -- A group of volunteers is making a difference for a Maine family, from the ground up.
Nail by nail, plank by plank, a house is taking shape in Kennebunk.
A house, that will be a family's first ever "home."
The Yearwoods are the recipients of a "Habitat for Humanity" house in York County. They were selected after applying online.
The Yearwoods have been married for 15 years and have two sons. They've been renting the entire time, living with the inconsistencies of a lease and other issues.
This week, different teams of volunteer contractors are helping to get the house frame up. That way, work can continue inside throughout the winter.
And even on one of the coldest days of the year, they say, they are happy to do it.
The Yearwoods are buying the house, at a price they can afford, with the help of a non-profit affordable mortgage.
Volunteers are welcome all week for the "framing blitz."
They hope to get the roof up by the weekend.
