Not all the hammering at the parties’ national conventions has been against the other side.
Democratic delegates this week have been taking shifts building half a house that will go to the family of a veteran of Iraq or Afghanistan. Republican delegates constructed the first half last week during their convention in Tampa.
It’s through a national non-profit program called Rebuilding Together, which is trying to expand its footprint in Kentucky beyond its existing affiliate in Paducah.
Here’s a look at the home they’ve been building, including the work a couple Kentuckians did.
