SUNDAY: Local volunteers spent the weekend building a local soldier a new home. They are a few days from seeing the fruits of their labor. The non-profit 'Steps 2 Hope' is working feverishly to complete a new home for Sergeant Jason Smith of Ringgold.
The workers started the day on Saturday with a lot on their plate. They had to do finishes to the ceiling in the family room, get doors up, fix up the bathroom, and do other necessary work to the house to get it ready for Jason and his family to move into next Saturday.
After hours of labor, workers met their goals. The ceiling is looking nice, the doors are up, and tile now sits in the new bathroom. Steps 2 Hope director Mark Wilson tells Channel 3 there was a bump or two along the way, but overall he is pleased.
