St. Jude Dream Home nears completion with help from hundreds

By  | 

COLLEGE STATION, Tex. (KBTX) - Construction is moving along at College Station's first ever St. Jude Dream Home. Tuesday, Jimmy Pitman with Pitman Custom Homes appeared on Brazos Valley This Morning to talk about the project's recent progress.

The St. Jude Dream Home is a collaboration between Magruder Homes and Pitman Custom Homes to create a beautiful house at virtually no cost. The builders will then sell the home for as much as they can and all of the profits will go to the kids of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

"Our goal was to try to engage our community and it's been astonishing to us how deep the heart in our community has been," Pitman said. "We've had, approaching over a thousand people who have reached out and worked with the home through donations, through labor, through different trades."

All profits will go toward St. Jude's mission to find cures for children battling cancer and other life-threatening diseases. A link is provided in the related links section of this page with more information on how you can help out.
