A woman's home is complete after a group of volunteers made it happen. Some volunteers took time away from campus while others took time away from the green. A group of college students from the University of Connecticut worked alongside two pro golfers, visiting the Coast for the Mississippi Gulf Resort Classic tournament. Willie Wood and Bob Tway are accomplished players around 18 holes, but were happy to trade their clubs for hammers for the day. Wood says, “Hammering's a lot easier than golfing. I'm usually better at tearing stuff up than building stuff.”
Tway says, “I feel real fondness for this because I've been here so many years. I saw all the destruction after and all the rebuilding. What really gets my heart is these kids from Connecticut who come down here instead of going to the beach for Spring Break, they’re out here helping people build houses." Wood and Tway have been coming to the Coast for years, playing in the Pro-Am tournament, which benefits Habitat for Humanity efforts.
