June 11-19, 2010
KBF is pleased to announce that Kristi Wilson will be the recipient of the fifth Extreme Build home built in McCreary County. Kristi Wilson is a single mother of two children ages seventeen and two. She works full time, often over fifty hours a week to provide for her children. She has struggled over the years, but has been able to buy her own land and a small mobile home that is rapidly deteriorating. Kristi comes from a large family of six children whose father died at a young age. She knows hardship firsthand and wants to provide a better life for her children. Kristi is divorced and receives no assistance from her children’s father. Through hard work and dedication, she has worked to raise her children on her own, but needs help to provide a safe and decent home for them. As Kristi says, “My main focus is my kids. I’m doing this for my kids so they can have something they can be proud of!” Let’s join together with Kristi’s family to build a house in just over a week. Won’t you be apart of this opportunity to “Build Up Hope” in McCreary County?
