World's Largest Gingerbread House Benefits Habitat for Humanity

It raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for St. Joseph Hospital in Bryan and brought joy to countless children this holiday season.

Now the world's largest gingerbread house is making an impact on less fortunate families in our community.

"We're taking this down and we'll be using the lumber for Habitat for Humanity," James T. Davis with Habitat for Humanity said.

On Tuesday workers with Habitat for Humanity salvaged lumber to be used to build two Habitat homes in the near future.

The gingerbread house was a project between the Traditions Club and St. Joseph Hospital to raise funds for the hospital's new trauma center.

In November a representative from the Guinness World Records Book declared the one-room house the largest of its kind ever built.
