Gift of a life time; family gets dream home

by Brittany Earl

ROTHSCHILD(WAOW)--Some would call it a dream come true but for the Yang family they say it's a second chance at life. Habitat For Humanity volunteers have been busy working for the past year helping to build the Yang's a ranch style house.

Wausau East Students dedicated two class periods a day for a year helping to build the home. Habitat For Humanity presented the house to the Yang family, handing over the keys. It was an exciting moment for everyone.

Berland Meyer, Vice President of Habitat For Humanity says, 'Well it's an exciting time for volunteers, it's kind of bittersweet because we've worked so hard on this home we've become very attached to the home. But we understand this is a wonderful opportunity for another family, to experience the pride of home ownership and become a supportive member of our community."

The Yang family will now have four bedrooms, two baths including a full basement for the children to play. The family plans to move in September 1st.
