EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - The fourth annual Barn Blitz with the University of Evansville was held on Saturday morning.

This is in partnership with Habitat for Humanity behind its office on East Diamond Avenue.

17 teams of UE student volunteers raced to build yard barns to help those in need.

The barns will go to people who have received homes thanks to Habitat for Humanity.

UE freshman Jack Deig says he’s just happy to give back.

“I look forward to impacting families that need these barns and need these things,” Deig said. “So it’s awesome to come out here and bond with people and do the event itself, but what’s most important is the communities that we’re impacting, as a fraternity but also as a university as well.”

Habitat officials say every time a home is made, people will get a yard barn delivered to their home.
