Paragould family surprised with home

PARAGOULD, AR (KAIT) - Habitat for Humanity of Paragould gave one family the gift of a home on Wednesday.

Work on the McDougle family's home will begin in just 10 days.

The family said they could not be more thankful for the gift of a home.

Alexander McDougle said his children are thrilled to be getting the new house.

"They'll be in a bigger room and be able to run around a little bit more freely and they'll have a bigger yard for all of them to play in which'll be good for all of them," he said.

The family said they cannot wait to see their new home take shape soon and it will make life much easier for them.

"It'll take a burden off of me," he said.

The home should be completed within six months.
