ABILENE, Texas -

Dozens of community members challenged the chilly temperatures Saturday to give back and provide shelter to those in need.

Volunteers spent the morning working on Habitat for Humanity homes on Simmons Street.

To get a home from the non-profit, recipients have to help build homes for others in addition to their own.

Some recipients were present at the project sites, along with volunteers from Dyess Air Force Base and local churches.

The goal is to get the homes finished by Christmas. Habitat for Humanity staff said they always need volunteers. Click here for more information.
