5 frames, 4 hours; project helping people get into new homes

Sixth year event has been held

SAN ANTONIO – Volunteers got a little dirty Sunday helping build the frames of five new houses for the sixth annual Project 240.

The project is a partnership between Habitat for Humanity of San Antonio and First Presbyterian Church. But there is more to project than just a catchy name; community members and volunteers got together to try to build the frames in four hours or less.

Among the volunteers -- some of the people who will eventually live in the homes being built.
