LUFKIN, TX (KTRE)- Habitat for Humanity has been working closely with Lufkin high school students to build a house for the community.

After the Lufkin tornado hit, debris covered the lot where the house will go once it's completed. Now hundreds of students from local churches are here to help clean up and get this space ready for a future home.

"We're just cleaning it up and making it look better for them so that we know that they do finish the house and they'll have a nice place to be," said Lufkin High Senior Brian Roy.

"This weekend is all about live love and I just think it's a great way to show God's love to others who need it," said Lufkin High Senior Hannah Goodwin.

The house will be transferred from the High school to this lot sometime this spring. The family that will live there has not yet been selected.
