Haiti to Frogtown, Twin Cities builders lend a hand

It’s wheels up Wednesday for a group of volunteers on their way to Haiti to help build a home for families affected by the earthquake.

This is the third trip for the group affiliated with the Builders Association of the Twin Cities, BATC, working with World Wide Village, a Twin Cities non-profit.

Parade of Homes visitors to the Dream Homes event sponsored by BATC are helping underwrite the home building with their admission fee.

The Builders Outreach Foundation is kicking in some help. It may lead to as many as five homes over the course of time.

These are some of the same folks who’ve been doing the same kind of work here in the Twin Cities, mostly in the Frogtown neighborhood of St. Paul since 1994.
