Volunteers needed to fix up local community

SAGINAW TOWNSHIP, MI (WNEM) -

Volunteers are asked to strap on their tool belts and get to work to fix up a local community. 

Habitat for Humanity plans to revitalize eight homes in Saginaw County's Thomas Township with the help of the people living there. 

About 200 volunteers are expected to take part in the week-long project, but more are needed. 

If you want to lend a hand, just show up at the former Shooters of Saginaw at either 7:30 a.m. or 12:30 p.m.

"This gives us an opportunity to give back and that's what we're excited about," said Russell Taylor, Thomas Township manager.

The project was started in response to a number of homeowners struggling to make ends meet who were in need of help to repair the wear and tear damage to their home.

"I couldn't ask for anything more. They're working hard and doing an excellent job," said Larry Rupp, homeowner.

After the job is done, Habitat for Humanity will be looking toward pursuing other projects within the community.

"We're just blessed to be out here again. This is our fifth project of the year and we just hope to continue growing because the need is great," said Cameron Brady, executive director for the Saginaw-Shiawassee Habitat for Humanity.
