Habitat for Humanity to build homes for more families

PARAGOULD, AR (KAIT) -

Paragould's Habitat for Humanity will soon be building homes for many families in need after receiving a special gift from two people.

They gave Paragould's Habitat for Humanity the ability to help several more families during this holiday season.

William and Lois Prestidge donated not one, not two but 10 lots of land to Habitat for Humanity.

Board president of the organization Terry Austin said this is a major game-changer for them.

“Nationally, habitat is struggling to find land,” Austin said. “There just aren't that many lots available to build on. And if they're available often they're snatched up by folks who are looking to build something to make a profit. And so, to have 10 lots become available to us changes our organization.”

These lots are located on the Northern side of Paragould near Westview Baptist Church.
