Delvin has earned 300 sweat equity hours in pursuit of her home by working on other Habitat homes under construction, in the Habitat office and the ReStore.  The home is located on Standifer in McKinney and is expected to be completed in early spring.

Sponsors for the Duckett home include:  High Pointe Church of Christ, Simpson Strong-Tie, St. Gabriel the Archangel Catholic Community, Trinity Presbyterian Church of McKinney, North Collin Habitat for Humanity Carpenters Club members and the Habitat ReStore.
