OAKLAND PARK, FLA. (WSVN) - Four families opened the doors to their new homes, Saturday, thanks to a South Florida charity.

Habitat for Humanity worked with Publix and Spirit Airlines to dedicate four homes to deserving families in Oakland Park.

Everyone involved said the hard work preparing the homes was worth it.

“I was out here puling weeds and getting rid of bushes, so we’re just glad its done, and we’re really excited for the family,” said Ted Christie, of Spirit Airlines.

“Being able to be part of someone creating something special, some sort of stability, some sort of tradition for their family. It’s never lost on us that these families have worked really hard to be here,” said Nicole Krauss, a spokesperson from Publix.

The homeowners were especially grateful.

“I’m very, very grateful to have a home with Habitat and Spirit. Words can’t explain how grateful and excited I am,” said Mickah Lockwood, a new homeowner.
