Capitol hammers for a cause

A contest at the state Capitol challenged legislators to drive nails in an effort to raise awareness for Habitat for Humanity.

Giving it a shot was Delegate Mike Folk, R-Berkeley. Steadying the beam are Lora Pierce, executive director at Habitat for Humanity of West Virginia, and David L. Michael, the executive director of the Huntington Area Habitat for Humanity.

 The contest brings out legislators to see who can drive a nail into a 2x4 the quickest. The three quickest nail driving times will receive the "Prestigious Hammer" award on March 6.

 There are 18 Habitat for Humanity affiliates across West Virginia. The organization brings people together to build homes, communities and hope.
