HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - The Habitat for Humanity in Hattiesburg is part of an innovative program called 2X4XU. It allows people to purchase two-by-four pieces of wood for $200 that will later be used in the construction of a new home. The program has been implemented nationwide by the organization.
It takes about 300 of these two-by-fours to complete a home. Those who purchase one are asked to decorate it and return it.
