Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood are doing their part to help nineteen Memphis families have a better life.
The country superstars have strapped on their tool belts for Habitat for Humanity’s 33rd Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter Work Project. Brooks and Yearwood have joined the former President and First Lady and hundreds of volunteers to do their part this week.
According to Habitat for Humanity, a majority of their homeowners put $500 down on the home and volunteer 300 to 500 hours working on construction projects for the organization. Along with the nineteen new homes, volunteers are working on 10 different neighborhood beautification projects around the city.
“It’s about creating home ownership opportunities where low-income families have the opportunity to buy a home for the first time,” Dwayne Spencer, President of the Memphis Habitat for Humanity, told WREG.
This week of hard work marks the couple’s tenth Habitat for Humanity project together. Brooks and Yearwood will hang up their hard hats and gloves just in time to return to their massively popular World Tour. They’re set to head to Anaheim, Calif., Fresno, Calif. and Orlando, Fla. before taking a much deserved break for the holidays. You can find a full list of their upcoming tour dates at Brooks’ official website.
