WACO, TX — Habitat for Humanity has another home underway and is getting help from a group of travelers.

RV Care-A-Vanners has been working alongside Habitat for Humanity to build a home for a family.

Members of the group are from all around the country and travel together in their RV's to help build homes with their affiliates.

Group leader Fred Winslow is a Waco native and a Christian. He and his wife believe that helping a community in need is the right way to spend their time.

"We're Christians and Jesus' command was to love and we feel like helping those who are poor or in poverty levels, when they need our help and it's one way that we can contribute," said Fred Winslow.

He and his wife make sure to mark scripture on the frame of the home. It is their way of blessing the house for the family.

"But it's just basic bones. We go in and we write scriptures and we bless the family that's going into the house. It's just so different than what we do. It stretches every muscle in our bodies everyday and I'm 75, my husband is 71, we still can push ourselves to do something like that, it just makes us feel very very good," said Sharron Winslow.

RV Care-A-Vanners is set to wrap up at the end of the month. The home is expected to be ready for move in by the beginning of June.
