Youngstown Phantoms help Habitat for Humanity

Posted: Updated:

STRUTHERS, Ohio - A good foundation is the basis of any good home. On Wednesday, volunteers from across Mahoning County made one home's foundation even stronger.

 On Lincoln Street in Struthers, Habitat for Humanity received help constructing their 40th home.

 Members of the Youngstown Phantoms traded in the ice skates for a nail gun, lending their carpentry skills for a few hours in honor of 9-11's national day of service.

"We all got together and thought, we should give back to the community a little bit seeing that Youngstown brings us in and houses us once a year, so yeah, we decided to come and work today and get this home built for the needy.", said Phantoms player Josh Nenadal.

 The goal is to have the house finished before Christmas..so the family can enjoy the holidays in their new home
