JACKSON, Miss. (WJTV) — Habitat for Humanity is working with the Eudora Welty Library Summer Reading Program to teach children why it is important to have a safe place to call home.

The summer reading program theme is “Building a Better World.”

Staff members for the organization spent Thursday led the children in songs about Habitat and showed them the tools used to build a house.

The children were given a hard hat and were given the opportunity to decorate lumber that will be used in an upcoming Habitat build.
