Roughly 1,000 Habitat for Humanity volunteers have been busy this week building new houses in Henryville. The effort comes seven months after the tornado that ravaged the area.
Habitat for Humanity of Indiana Director Gina Leckron says about 250 volunteers per day have been working on various projects. She says they've been coming from all over the midwest. Leckron says they're currently working on shingles, siding and more. Leckron says subcontractors and electricians are also on site.
She says the goal is to move families in by Christmas. Leckron says the "blitz" is serving as a model way for building homes for needy, low income families.
