“This is our fourth year of spreading the good word about what Habitat for Humanity Detroit is doing to rebuild neighborhoods one family at a time,” said WXYZ Morning Anchor Alicia Smith.

Every year members of WXYZ’s social media family on Facebook and Twitter (#backchannel & #earlyrisers) step up to swing a hammer. People from all over metro Detroit and Canada join in as well.
