LONG BEACH (CBSLA.com) — Dozens of volunteers made their way to the Lowe’s home improvement parking lot in Long Beach on Friday, helping to frame a new house.
The effort was part of a day-long event to raise awareness of Habitat for Humanity and its mission to help low income families afford their own homes.
If all goes as planned, La Tonya Thompson’s three-bedroom home should be ready by June.
“It’s very exciting. It’s been my dream since I was 22. So it’s finally coming true,” said Thompson, who was on site doing framing work on her home.
For the past ten years, Lowe’s has been in partnership with Habitat for Humanity. For more information, click here.
