As a big ol’ country music fan, I’m always excited to report when my favorite southern star does something awesome!
On Mother’s Day, Trisha Yearwood gathered her mom, sister and niece and joined Habitat for Humanity for the fourth time to help build homes for the homeless.
In the past, Yearwood lent a hand building walls in New Orleans, protective structures in Mississippi and putting up siding in California. She told USA Today:
“I’ve always wanted to do something that is hands-on. Habitat was always one of those things. It’s a physical labor project, yes – you’re very tired at the end of the day. But you feel like you’ve really done something.”
“You almost feel guilty because you feel like you get more out of it than the people getting the house. I love that they say that they give a hand up, not a handout.”
