Rangers Help Build Denison Home

10-18-06 - A Grayson County family will soon have a new home with some unique builders behind it's construction. The Texas Rangers helped Habitat for Humanity build a house that will be moved to Denison in November.

The Hall family is the recipient of the house, and they also played an active role in building it. Traveling to Arlington to help with construction, the family has invested plenty of sweat equity into the 3 bedroom, 2 bath home.

On Tuesday, Rangers Mark Teshera and Ian Kinsler traded their bats and gloves for hammers to do the same.

Since Habitat for Humanity started their own organization in Grayson County back in 1991, 13 families have earned new homes. This is the first year the Rangers Habitat efforts have resulted in a home for Grayson County.

The Hall's new home will be moved to south Travis in Denison. The land was donated two weeks ago by Kenneth Blankenship.
