Habitat for Humanity Helps Navassa Family

APRIL 2, 2006 -- Progress is being made on a special project for a deserving family in Navassa.

We first introduced you to the McMillian family on WECT after they lost their home in a fire.

Habitat for Humanity and the local community are joining together to help build a new home for the family.

McMillian family members along with Habitat volunteers and folks from the Unity Christ Church in Wilmington spent the day in Navassa laying the foundation for the home.

Jill McMillian said she is grateful for all the help and the lessons her children are getting from this experience. The McMillian home is expected to be finished in the next 12 weeks.
