One of the projects for this campaign is in Sun Prairie. Volunteers worked on a Habitat Home on Sweet Grass Drive, including some WKOW staff.
The effort is to help make one family's dream of home ownership come true.
"They're in the program" Paul Tesmer, the site supervisor, said. "They have to do 325 hours of sweat equity before they get into their house, and they're in the process of doing that now."
The prospective home owners also take personal finance, and home and lawn maintenance classes. Tesmer says that's part of giving people a foundation to become a homeowner.
"The best part is toward the end," Tesmer said. "You can see they're excited; they've been packing. They're ready to move in. They can't wait to get into their house."
Most of the exterior walls were put up on Tuesday.
