GREENSBORO, NC -- The Wyndham Championship ended weeks ago. Henrik Stinson took home the Sam Snead Cup and Sedgefield Country Club went back to normal. But there was one more prize to give away before the Wyndham folks took a break: the 'Key To Wyn' house.
The house is built as a fan amenity at the PGA tour. People can walk through the home, win prizes or just relax. At the end of the week-long tournament, Wyndham Worldwide donates the house to Habitat For Humanity of Greater Greensboro. Habitat takes the house apart and rebuilds it for a family in need in the Triad. This year that family is Abdo, Abir and their four children.
Right now the family of six lives in an apartment where they have for four years. Abdo says his kids don't have space to play or the opportunity to be kids.
WFMY News 2's Maddie Gardner was there and spoke to the parents and Maria Hanlin - Habitat Greensboro CEO.
"The apartment is very crowded," he says. They do not have freedom to move and play around. Not like a house."
Abir says each Sunday her kids ask to stop by and see how the construction is going. In close to five months the family will be able to call the house, home.
"Really I can’t express that because it create a moment in my life for me to have a house here," Abdo says. "And move to a new house - especially for my kids."
Habitat Greensboro builds or repairs around 20 houses each year. If you want to get involved you can check out their website.
