Hundreds of volunteers came together Tuesday to help built nine brand-new townhomes in South Baltimore.

More than 350 volunteers from Stanley Black & Decker were lending a hand at the homes along Puget Street in Mt. Winans. 

It's part in Habitat for Humanity of the Chesapeake's 26th Annual Summer Build Week. 

"Having volunteers help with these projects is really wat habitat is all about, trying to get people together involved in revitalizing communities," said Mike Posko, CEO, Habitat for Humanity of the Chesapeake.

Stanley Black & Decker also donated $15,000 worth of tools for the project.

Posk said the goal is to have the homes completed in two months and start working on another 18 homes around the corner.
