With a successful BarbeCAUSE event last year, Pine Belt Young Professionals (PBYP) was able to raise enough money to purchase sod for a Hattiesburg Area Habitat for Humanity home being built in Petal, MS. Not only were we able to provide the necessary funds to purchase the locally-grown grass, we were also able to lay the sod for this wonderful new family home.

On Saturday, July 26th, members of Pine Belt Young Professionals rolled up their sleeves and laid eight palates worth of sod at the new Habitat home. The day was hot and the work was hard, but laboring along-side the recipient family and other families who had been touched by Habitat for Humanity's fantastic work made it all worthwhile. What started out as a muddy front yard, ended up as a lush green lawn for a very happy family. 

Special thanks to Habitat for Humanity for letting us participate in this fantastic project, and to the PBYP volunteers who came out to help!
