‘From the ground up,’ “Listed Sisters” help with local Habitat House
By Carole Robinson • Senior Staff Writer
Alana and Lex LeBlanc from HGTV’s program “Listed Sisters” showed up recently to help work on the Habitat for Humanity Williamson-Maury Women’s Build on Natchez Street.
Both of the identical twins live in Williamson County – Lex in Brentwood and Alana in Franklin – and were compelled to give back to their community by supporting a project that empowers women and encourages them to “step out of their comfort zone.”
They worked along side new homeowner Stephanie Dixon, a single mom and her daughter Ronesha.
“We volunteered to be Habitat for Humanity Women Build ambassadors from the ground up,” Alana said.
This is Dixon’s first home and she is excited to be moving in.
“We are excited to be able to live in the county I was born and raised in,” She said. “Being able to own my own home and raise my daughter here is a blessing.”
Dixon has worked every weekend along with the more than 50 volunteers to build her home. She will receive the keys to her home along with the zero interest mortgage papers on Saturday, June 10.
Alana and Lex will be emcees and guests of honor at HFHWM’s annual Hammers & High Heels fundraiser on Saturday, June 3, at Liberty Hall in the Factory at Franklin. The sisters donated a coffee table they built to be auctioned at the event.
